Can the Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus 600 W run the ATI HD Radeon 6870 which requires two 75W 6-pin PCI Express® power connectors. ??

Please help

Yes, but if you do not own one, I'd suggest a better quality unit.

Agreed with jsc. Extreme Power series from Cooler Master is their cheapest one, and not recommended for gaming rigs. Rather go with their GX series, Silent Power Pro or Silent Pro series. They are more expensive, but they are also better built and provide better efficiency than the Extreme Power series.

Yes that psu will run that card but not very efficiently.And it's not a 600W unit it produces just shy of 550W.

Cooler Master GX models aren't really much better and offer mediocre performance for the price.
Here's a GX 650 review

If you're looking for cheaper good quality units i would look for an OZC.
Antec and Corsair make very good units but cost more.

The Antec and the VX550 are really great units.

Well the Graphics card mentioned above requires 2 * (6+2)pin 75 W power connetors. None of the above meintioned power supplies have such specification Can I go for Cooler Master M600 Silent Pro ??

They certainly do!you'll only need two 6pin the 6+2 lead is for high-end cards.
Both units have that as well.

The Corsair TX is also very good.

Cooler Master Silent Pro is overpriced IMHO. Antec HCG would do you well also. And you can then twist for a slightly more powerful PSU for the same price as the Silent Pro.
