Now my question is it says it comes with one 6/8 pin PCI-E power connector, so does that mean I CANNOT buy a Radeon 4890? Shown here:

By specifications, that is an excessively mediocre power supply. 44 amps is excessively weak for a 750 Watt PSU. A good 750 watt PSU will put out around 60 amps on the 12 volt output. And a 750 watt Corsair will have four 6/8 plugs.

Having said that, you can use a moles to PCI-e power adapter. The graphics card should have at least one packed with it.

oh ok so even though it only has 1 6/8 pin pci-e power connector I could use a molex to pci-e connector to power it?

for the 2nd PCI-E?

You can use an adapter on both as long as you separate the cards on different 12v rails.

I just want one graphics card, but usually most of the new cards require 2 6 pin PCI-E adapters, so why I was asking, so I can use the regular 6 pin pci-e that my PSU supplies and then a 6pin to molex adapter? For the newer cards? Such as the 4890 if I wanted it correct?

The Molex and PCIe will be on the same rail since their are only 2 in total.

This Power Supply will def be able to power my new Gigabyte Radeon HD 5870? I got the adapter, now have 2 6 pin pci-e connectors. Should be ok?

wups, sorry was on my other screename stryder092, will my PSU, listed above, be able to support my new Gigabyte Radeon HD 5870? I think it should be fine considering the 5870 is very power efficient and it needs a 500 watt psu minimum, mine is 750 watt but very mediocre that guy says. It should be fine though?
