When it says in the description for this PSU PCI-Express Connector - 1 x 6pin, 1 x 6pin + 2 does this mean it has 2 x 6pin connector's? then one of them has an optional 2pin connector that can also be used, the reason im asking is would i be able to connect that PSU to this Graphics card ?

thanks, Ryan.

Yes and yes.
The 6+2 pin connector is a 6-pin with an additional 2-pin to make it an 8-pin PCI-E.
You will need both 6-pins for that card, leaving the extra 2-pins hanging to the side.

Alright, so it's not like it has 2 permanent 8 pin PCI-e cables, it just means that it has two 6 pin ones but with the option to have those extra 2 pins plugged in?

BTW just switched the PSU I had with the corsair, ty for that! :D
