I'm thinking about ordering an AMD Radeon HD 6950 graphics card as an upgrade to my current ATI Radeon HD 3400 (which is obviously very outdated). However, I need a new power supply for it. If anyone could provide me with recommendations to specific power supplies, I would greatly appreciate it.

Not just anything over 500W. Go for a good brand like Corsair, Antec, XFX, Seasonic, OCZ.

The main concern I have is that the 6950 requires two 75W 6-pin PCI Express power connectors. I'm not sure how to find a power supply that has those.

you can buy molex-to-6 pin conector's. but the psu i have had 4 of those 6 + 2 pins. i think you will be fine :)
