Hey guys I have a question which I just need to confirm. In the next few days I plan to buy a 5850 and the Corsair VX550w and I was wondering since the PSU has one 6 pin PCI-E connector and two 6 pin PCI-E connectors how should I setup the card? Should I use the 6 pin and a 6.2 pin? Or both 6.2 pins?

More about : confirm

Your 5850 needs two 6-pin PCI-e power connectors.
Your CORSAIR VX550 has one 6-pin connector and another (6+2)-pin connector. You won't use the two pins of the (6+2)-pin connector. You only have to use the 6-pin part (as you can see in the link below).

So you won't have any problem.

Since I can't edit my post I meant to say, the PSU has one 6 pin PCI-E connector and two 6.2 pin PCI-E connectors.

No, it hasn't two (6+2)-pin connectors. As I have said you before, The VX550 has one 6-pin connector and another (6+2)-pin connector. That's all.

Oops my bad, I must have gotten confused with something else. Thanks for confirming that it will work though.
