Hi,

While putting together my PC, I noticed that the CoolerMaster psu has only 1 6-pin power connector. I didn't know that the 6850 required 2 6-pin connectors. The 6850's manual suggests we use 2 separate 6-pin power connectors as opposed to splitting 1. So this means I should go get a new psu? Any suggestions? Thanks!

Just use a molex to PCIe power adapter and you'll be good to go. Like this:
