  1. The adapter is Molex to 6 pin pcie, and is included with the card in case your psu doesn't have the 2 required connectors.
    If your psu has no 6 pin pcie connector, replace it.

  3. Hi, I'm looking to get the 6850 and I read somewhere that it's better to use a dedicated 6 pin to 6 pin direct from power supply to graphics card rather than molex to 6 pin. Will it make any difference? Surely it will still power it?
    Thanks in advance
