Will this PSU work with Sapphire 4890?

This may be a stupid question, but I do find this very confusing.
On the Sapphire website, to use a HD4890, you need at least 500w PSU and 2x 75w 6 pin PCI-E connectors.
The power supply I was thinking of buying is a Corsair TX 650W. However, it lists that is has "PCI-E 8 pin x2".
Will this PSU work with this card?
I apologise if this is a daft question, I'm a total n00b when it comes to this stuff.

Still not got that card? ;) 
The reason that PSU has 2x8 pin is it is so powerful, some cards need the extra pins because of their high power draw.
I take it the PSU is this?

If so; Good choice, sir! It will laugh at the HD4890, all you need to do is not to use the extra 2-pin addons (it has 2x6+2 connectors), just tape them out of the way.

Yeah, that's the one.
Thanks again, extremely grateful for all the help!
