Can this card be ran from a 4 pin power connector or only a 6 pin?

 

Looking at this pic there seems to be a converter....

According to the specifications, the GTX 650 is powered by a single 6-pin connector.

If the 7850 was in his budget then he most likely would of gotten a better version of the GTX 650 (the 2GB GTX 650 ti boost Superclocked is cheaper and faster than the 7850).

Back on topic the video card requires a 6 pin connector weither is be by a 4 pin adapter or you powersupply just has one. I would be careful about using a 4 pin convertor since alot of times if your powersupply doesn't have its own 6 pin connector then theres a reason (it usually too weak).
