# The GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card requires 120 W of power. You plan to install it in a PCIe 3.0 × 16 slot. Will you need to also install extra power to the card? If so, how can you do that? a. Yes. The PCIe 3.0 ×16 slot provides 75 W, and you need to connect the card using a PCIe 8-pin connector to gain additional power. b. No. The PCIe 3.0 × 16 slot provides all the necessary power and no extra power connection is required. c. Yes. The PCIe 3.0 × 16 slot provides 75 W, and you need to connect the card using a PCIe 6-pin connector to gain additional power. d. Yes. The PCIe 3.0 × 16 slot provides 100 W, and you need to connect the card using a Molex connector to gain an additional 20 W.
