pci-e connector = 2 x 6+2-Pin



will this psu work with a gtx 480?

gtx 480 requires
6-pin pci-e + 8-pin pci-e power connections

Yes it will run it but unless you get the 480 cheap then you would be better of with a GTX570!

Yes 6+2 means you can use it as a 6 pin or 8 pin plug.

needless to say I have one and love it, especially with a nice oc it is darn close to a 580 in most games where it matter ie the witcher 2 and metro/crysis

u should buy the 570 GTX equal to the 480 GTX and takes less power and also cheap

as the guys sayed 570 will be better unless that you are going to get 480 for way hell cheap price or if you already have it
but overall your psu will run it fine

Chose the 570 Unless you play High res with AA then the 480 is better although it consumes more power
