The instructions on the XFX card say to use 2 seperate 6x2 pins.

I am so confused!

  1. Yes.
    The cable thing is a non issue.
    If you don't have the right cables you can get adapters and such to make it physically plug in.
    The power supply itself should be sufficient.
  2. The NxZT hale 82 750 watt doesn't have (3) 6x2 cables. It only has (2) 6x2

    the sapphire gets 1 6 plug

    the xfx needs 2 seperate 6x2 though
  3. Yea, thats why you get an adapter to get the extra 6x2:
