Gateway 5404 with 300 watt power supply, with 1 PCIe connector provided for the one slot on the motherboard. 300 watts is minimum to run the Nvidia GT 7900 graphics card. I have a 450 watt Coolmax power supply but it does not have a PCIe connector. Old unit but 33% more power than the stock power supply. Can I adapt one of the white 4 wire plugs to a PCIe plug to use the bigger power supply? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you for listening.
