The graphics card: XFX Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5
LINK: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
The power supply: OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W PSU
LINK: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

The graphics card I stated above requires two 6-pin connectors, so my question is will this power supply work with this graphics card? Does anyone know FOR SURE if this specific power supply (the one I have listed above) has TWO 6-pin connectors?? Will this power supply work with any generic motherboard do you think?

Other PC parts:
ASUS generic HDMI mid-ATX motherboard (it's a pre-built ASUS desktop, which is why I say generic)
Intel Core i5-2320 @ 3GHz

^+1.
Just be sure that card will fit the case, if so, you're fine.

Personally I don't like the reviews on the new Corsair Builder Series PSU's. I would rather buy an Antec PSU instead for similar $. Just look at the Newegg reviews (even though they aren't the gospel, but I'm just saying).

$60 + $13 shipping = $73
Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Other options too:
$85 + $10 shipping = $95
PC Power and Cooling Silencer MK III 500W Modular 80PLUS Bronze Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandy Bridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom

$80 + $14 shipping = $94
SeaSonic M12II 520 Bronze 520W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS 12V v2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

+1 for the 7850!
Here is one:
$199 + $10 shipping - $10 MIRc = $199!!!
