I'm wrapping up a mini ITX build. I'm on the last part of plugging in a GTX 680 and I'm confused on one part and I know I had to do this before.

It's got the sockets in the card for both a 6 pin and 8 pin power supply. Then it comes with the adapters for 8 pin to PCI-Express and 6 pin to the 4 pin style peripheral power.

I can't really tell if I'm supposed to run power from both the 8 pin and 6 pin to the PSU, or if they're just giving me options for one or the other based on making it compatible with all power supplies? Want to make sure I'm not giving this too much power.
