For the same price, I'd get the Corsair and use the 6 pin portion (leave the +2 hanging) of the twin 6+2 pin cables. Antec $69 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Corsair $59 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... m 0 l Best solution jockey a b ) Power supply December 13, 2010 8:35:54 PM 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.
