Hello,
I recently ordered a new graphics card. A EVGA GTX 560 Ti 448 Classified. I'm concerend because I just noticed it needs (2) 8 pin connections and I'm only set up with (2) 6 pin connectors. What do I do in this case ? Can I order 6 pin to 8 pin adapter cables and use those ?? Please let me know.... a little concerned. Thanks !

It looks to me like the card needs a 6 pin and an 8 pin and you can get an adaptor that will convert two 6 pins to an 8 pin or two molex connectors to an 6 pin. What comes with the card is a two 6 pin to one 8 pin adaptor and it also comes with a two molex connector to one 6 pin connector so with the two 6 pin connectors that you have you should have enough.

What is the make and model of your power supply unit?

It's not as simple as using an adapter cable.
