Just got a new Gigabyte 670 card (coming from HD 6950) and noticed it requires a 6 and 8 pin power connector. I have a Corsair TX850 (non modular) and have to use the 6+2 connector as it doesnt have a dedicated 8 pin. My question is, how do i connect the 6+2 together? Which side does the 2 pins connect to? The current 6 pin has a row of yellow cables at top and row of black cables on bottom and the 2 pin is all black. Just need to know if it goes on the left or right as i can connect it together either way but don't want to damage my card.

It's keyed to only fit in one way.

If you're holding the PCIe cable with the connector end facing upward and with the yellow +12V wire side of the 6-pin connector facing you the +2-pin piece will be on the right hand side.
