This is something i dont know so much about, so i ask..

Is the feed from the psu "continuous" ?

I have 2 computers, with the nitro 1200w psu in them

now for the question-->

Is it possible to "borrow" some of the pci-e connectors from the other computer, in order to run my 4e gpu properly in computer in question?

:cool::cool::cool::cool::cool:

Answer to the first question is...: Yes it's continuous! and Contentious!! Yikes
Answer to Second question is...: Not unless they are modular then Hell Yes steal a couple cables if you need! They have no 5 volt in them but pull a heck of a lot of 12 volt....

When I am running 4 graphic cards in quad SLi I have to run three PSU's to feed the hungry beast that is the 580GTX.

So if you are asking can you provide power to other graphic cards via a second or third PSU yes.

The PSU is only providing current when switched on. I know it is obvious just wanted to be clear on that one.

So if you are running multi cards and feeding power to two of them via a separate PSU both PSU's need to be powered up for the PCIe connectors to work.

i think i wasnt clear enough..

My thought was to steal some juice/power from the second psu (running them both)..

anyone know if some of the 7950 is "flashable" to 7970?

I haven't done any research on the subject yet. If that is the case, my day is made..
