Or do I have to get a PSU that has 4x 6pin and no 8pins?

Are those the two cords that are confusing you? If so you would take one of the 8 pin PCI-E cables and plug it into the 8 pin female connector on both the PSU and the adapter cable, and plug the 6 pin male end of the cable into the GPU. It shouldnt have a problem supporting 2 5850s as it is a good 750W unit. http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story5&reid=171
Yes, those are the cables which confused me.
I had the 8-pin to 6-pin on the wrong side. It was confusing because the box shape and other shape didn't line up, and I assumed both sides were the same.
Once I read the labels more closely I checked and it all fits right. Thanks!
I'm interested in whether you system is even capable of running 2 5850's.....
