I have currently upgraded my BFG Gts250 with an Asus GTX275, i am currently running a Core i5 2400, 8 gig ddr3 xms3 ram, 2 tb seagate hard drives i have a asus P8P67 Deluxe MB, my power supply is a proline 800watt psu, not sure if it can handle the pressure or if it has 2 6pin connectors, what can i do?

Thanks

ive never heard of proline psu's. sounds dodgy. on a quick google search i cant find any information about them at all which is always a bad sign.

Only in SA would they still be selling the GTX275.... You would have been better off going for a GeForce 4xx/5xx series or a Radeon 5xxx/6xxx.

That aside, you will need to plug in both connectors for the card to work.
