i just got my new power supply (pcp & p 510dlx) today, and ofcoursei happily installed it right away. one problem i have on my hands now is that the power supply only has one of the smaller connectors to go to a floppy drive. sorry, i dont know the name of the little guy. the thing is, that i need one to power my 9700pro as well. ive never taken apart connectors on a power supply before, but i assume i can just replace a regular molex with a smaller one. any info on where i can get an adaptor or a smaller connector, and how to switch it?

You could just remove your floppy. They are almost usless now. Then later add a USB header where the floppy is now ;) and nab a $10~20 pen drive MB for MB the cheaper and safer solution.

Unless you are using SATA, then I see no reason for a floppy. Just make sure you have an older pc with one in it, in case of an emergency. ;)
