Hi guys. I am building a new gaming pc. My card is a xfx 6870 1gb ddr5 and the psu is an Aerocool 600W.

The problem is that the card has two 6 pin connectors. I just want to know if it will be compatible with my psu as the latter has only one 6pin connector.

Any help will be appreciated...

Quite obviously NO. You can buy some molex to 6 pin converters. Ideally though, you should buy a better power supply.

The Aerocool E80-600 Power Supply with its combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 45 Amps is more than enough to handle a single Radeon HD 6870 graphics card system. Hardware Secrets review of this power supply unit has shown that it can actually deliver its rated power.

There should be no problem using a Molex to 6-pin PCI-E power adapter for the second 6-pin PCI Express Supplementary power connector on the graphics card which was also talked about by Hardware Secrets as a solution for the shortage of PCI-E connectors.

Good decision. PSU is something you should never save money on.
