I have a Silverstone Stryder ST85F 850w modular PSU and was wondering if I can power a single EVGA GTX 460 2Win graphics card using two 6-pin to 8-pin power cables or power it using a single 6-pin to dual 8-pin cable?
Need to know this fast since I have bought the graphics card!

850W is complete overkill for a 460. You could probably power two of them.
Your psu comes with 2x8pin and 4x6pin. I would just use the Silverstone supplied 2x8pin directly from your psu. The gpu adapters are provided for people that have psu's that don't come with 8pin pcie connectors.
