Hello,

this is my PSU

http://www.amazon.co.uk/OCZ-600W-ModXStream-Power-Suppl...

I have two HDDs, one SSD and am running at AMD 965 at stock frequency (3.4 Ghz)

My question is can the PSU support this 6970

http://www.powercolor.com/us/products_features.asp?id=3...

it says it has 6 and 8 pin connectors on the card, I presume this is an either or not a both are required situation?

Any help appreciated

the 6970 needs both a 6+2 & 6 - pin power connectors, the OCZ has both. it's a solid unit and your system won't break 400w during gaming

Test System Specs
- Intel Core i7 920 (Overclocked @ 3.70GHz)
- x3 2GB G.Skill DDR3 PC3-12800 (CAS 9-9-9-24)
- Asus P6T Deluxe (Intel X58)
- OCZ GameXStream (700W)
- Seagate 500GB 7200-RPM (Serial ATA300)

If you want to objectively, accurately and scientifically determine what PSU power is required for your Vid card and PC in both watts and 12v rail amps., the forum Utility link below will show you how easy it is to calculate this information and objectively determine which PSUs are quality built, reliable PSUs that can meet your needs. Be advised that the available 12v rail amps. is just as important as the total PSU wattage. You need both to be correct.
