I have ordered a XFX HD 6970 2GB. Currently i am using a HD-5850. I have a 650watt PSU but it only has 1 6pin PCI power connector but i am using a 6pin adapter. I believe that the XFX model does not come with the 8pin connector that other manufactures send. Will two 6pin power connectors power the 6970 or will i have to buy a separate 8pin adapter?
My PSU is powerful enough to supply the card the power it needs! That's not my problem, all I need to know is will I need both a 6pin and 8pin or just two 6pin connectors! I ask this as some sites say I need the 6 and 8 and other site say I need just two 6! I have two 6 pin but will I need to buy a 8 pin adapter?
