i am looking into 1070 cards right now, so far i came up with these 2 as pretty good cards:
- asus rog strix geforce gtx 1070 8GB
- msi gtx 1070 gaming x 8g
normally i'm a fan of MSI. they are popular in our country, so i guess they will have decent value whenever i would like to sell them again. also they are normally very quiet compared to other cards. i don't have any experience with the 2 cards above though (or any other 1070 card).
one of the differences between the two is that the asus only has 1 pin to connect (8 (6+2) pins), and the msi card requires 2 pins ( 6 pins, 8 (6+2) pins ).
i am wondering, is it ok to use such a cable as shown on the image below for connecting the MSI card or any other card? i mean, i can imagine that msi did put these 2 pins on it for a reaon, would feeding it from the psu with such a splitter cable be enough then?
