Can I use an 8 Pin in my 6Pin GTX 460?

I have a GTX 460 and an XFX XXX edition 650W PSU. The PSU comes with a 6 pin and a 6+2 pin and the GTX needs two 6 pins to be powered. Is it okay to use the 6 pin portion of the 6+2 in one of the GTX 460's 6pin slots. In simple terms, can you plug in a 6+2 into a 6 if you just ignore the +2?
