Windows 7: Help with PS question regarding connection options

Help with PS question regarding connection options

Hi all, I'm trying to choose a new ps. How can I make sure that I get one that has 3 or more of the new(ish) power connectors. I ordered a ps online and it had only 2, leaving my dvd drive to be swapped as needed. This is irritating.

On newegg, i dont see any specifications as to the connection types and quantities. Perhaps I just don't know the proper terminology to look for.

Any help? I want something that runs 450+ watts and is quiet. The connection i am wanting is a thin rectangle that looks sort of like a tall skinny letter "L". I need 3. 2 ssd drives and a dvd drive.

Thanks! <3

When you see a power supply you are interested in, write down the complete model number, then navigate to the manufacturer's webpage and look it up there. They will normally have more detailed and complete specs on the unit, usually with pictures.

You can buy SATA power splitters, either from your local computer hardware store or from on-line merchants.
