I'm upgrading from my problematic 8800 GT. It has been overheating 4ever and since it's pretty dated. I'm going to upgrade to a 5850. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... this one looks interesting but I look over the power connector and saw this "Power Connector 6 pin / 8 pin". One is 6 pin and the other 8-pin that so weird. That's my power supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and I'm not even sure if it has a 8-pin connector. by the way that's my mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168.... Does my power supply has a 8-pin connector and will it be able to hold this new cpu ? I saw the other version of the 5850 have 2-6pin connectors but I really like the ASUS one. Thx for your help.

Your PSU specs show you have a 6-pin AND a 6+2-pin power lead, so you should be good on that. (The GPU pics show a power converter using 2 molex leads, but i cannot see if it for a 6-PIN, or an 8-PIN LEAD.)
