I am running a server machine/gaming machine, and will be using the Intel S5520SC Motherboard, and the Nvidia GeForce GTX 590, but it says it only supports a graphics card of 300W. the Geforce takes up 340W when under a full load, can this be fixed with the Two 8-pin Supplemental Power connectors, or will I just have to limit it to 300W???

Do you mean you need to add a molex connector(s) to the PSU to plug it in?
What kind of power supply? How many Watts, make and model?
