I'm looking at the specification for the card I have bought (Asus GTX 660 Ti) and in Power Consumption it seems to say 2 6 pin PCIe connectors? Is this true, or is this a typo. If so, will the PSU I have bought (OCZ 550W ZS) support this power arrangement? I was told that it will have no problem running the card with power requirements etc, however the pin requirements were not brought up as an issue by the people helping me select the card.

Will they be an issue? As a n00b, I cannot tell. If they are going to be an issue... what can I do about it? The PSU and GPU are being shipped right now. Is there an adapter that can help with this issue?

Thanks in advance for any help.

The 660Ti does require two 6 pin PCIe power connectors and I use one from the PSU and one from molex adapters on each of my two cards.

So I do need an adapter? I am confused. The PSU says 1x 6-pin PCIe, but also 1x 6+2-pin PCIe... does this mean I have the 2 6-pins the card requires? Or is a 6+2-pin solely for 8-pin cards?

hi
I have a 600w ocz power supply and an asus gtx660ti and the power supply came with two 6 pin connectors so theres a very good chance you will be ok .
If not you can get molex to 6 pin adaptors.
A 6+2 can be used on 6 or 8 pin sockets,it is two connectors a 6 and a two

It sounds like you have two 6 pin plugs and one can be converted to an 8 pin if need be.
