Hi, I am going to recieve my new GTX 295 soon and I was wondering if my PSU can handle that and an 8800 GTS as a Physx card. It is a Thermaltake Toughpower 750W. I know the GTX 295 uses a 6 pin and an 8 pin. My PSU has both because I have a 280 hooked up right now. What I do not see is another 6 pin for the 8800 gts. Maybe I have not looked hard enough? lol. Is there an adapter I can use because I have more 4 pins. If I manage to connect it do I have enough power for both cards?

You'll need to use a Molex to PCIe adapter. And you should have enough power.

What he said, plus I have Thermaltake Toughpowers in two of my computers and a 750wt should handle your setup with ease based on my experience.
