    Then you will need a few items. 1 x 6pin to 6pin & 8pin to 8pin power cables, 1 x 180 watts power brick, 1 x gtx 1060. you should have the right angle riser card which plugs into your pci-e line on the motherboard, what is your spec of your pc Seany?

    thanks for your help, i have the i5 gtx750 3.2ghz 8g rog g20, got it last year, can feel it slowing down a bit so i figured id go ahead and replace that 750, i bought the 180 supply

    this is the 180 supply i got - http://www.asus.com/us/Notebooks-Acc...apter_N180W02/

    ive checked the forums and it seems the one needed is 19v - 9.5 A, mine is 19.5v - 9.23 directly from the asus site itself.

    Here is the 6-pin to 6-pin that I recently ordered, and it worked perfectly: http://www.ebay.com/itm/331925843634

    The guy who is doing the installation for the gtx 1060 says I need one male 6pin connector. Does that mean a male to male connection? Or male to female connection? Thanks

    Hi, inside the g20 u will have two connectors.(if u will have version with 970 or 980) 6 and 8 pin. Just install 1060 in pci slot, connect 6 pin and that's it.

    male to male, and a single 6pin to 6pin will do the job, it don't matter that you don't use the second power port

    That's close enough and not something I'd worry about.
