I looked up the OCZ GXS 850 on the internet and it is said to have 2x PCIe 6pin and 2x PCIe 8pin, but this is what I found in mine:
1 motherboard cable pack :p  ATX
2 PCIe
6 SATA
1 split cable into 2x 4pin to power my processor?
And a bunch of random cables to power DVD Floppy maybe a fan?



If I can count the PCIe connector can provide 150W in stead of the usual 75W? Or where eould the 850W otherwise go if I can only hook up 1 videocard?
Just to check before i buy 2x a 7950 XFX and I find out that they will run at way to low hash rates or something like that.

That's enough amps to run them fine, but you would need to get some molex to PCIe connectors to hook up both cards, they won't run with only 1 of the 2 plugs plugged in.
