Hey. Anyone have any power supply suggestions for the 6870? im looking to spend around $100 give or take around $30.

I dont think there is a way it absolutely necessary to use those two 6 pin power slots?

My heart sank when I found the power pins :(  But the card was on sale for only $99! Still worth it imo

You could use a molex to PCIe adapter, assuming your current PSU is capable of putting out the extra power. And it's not a perfect solution since PSUs usually aren't designed to handle big loads on the molex connectors.
