    I have 2 of these power bricks for Sager NP9280 (Clevo D900F) with male output plugs. I'm looking to upgrade the GPU but hear a single 220 watt power supply wont be enough to run the GTX 680m.

    #1...Is there an adapter to combine the 2 and make 440 watts?

    #2...Will my notebook handle this incoming 440 wattage without causing problems on the mobo?

    I'm a novice so if you know of an easier way, please let me know. If you have a link to what I need, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks,
    Charlie

    The adapter converts two chords into one. So two males into one male.

    If I have to use the adapter, can my machine handle 440 watts incoming?

    It will draw what it needs, I can't remember if it had a global power limit but I don't think so.
