Will this GPU and PSU work?

Hi guys, I'm new to building PCs so I have a few questions,


I have recently bought this graphics card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150521

and this power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139001


Will the power supply be enough? Will it be enough if I overclock my cpu? (intel core 2 quad q8200)

Also the card will need 2 6-pin connectors, but the power supply doesn't have 6 pin connectors so what extra cables will I need to buy to get it to work?

Thanks in advance :)

More about will work
  1. The Corsair CMPSU-520HX has two -pin PCIe power connectors, is an excellent PSU with a 5 year warranty, and with 40A on the 12V rail it is sufficientfor your GPU and any amount of OC you would want to do.

    As stated there should be 2 of them, both modular
    If you bought it used and didn't get them any 6 pin modular cable will work

    Corsair used to give them away, no more of that happening
