Hi there,

just purchased this PSU:

http://www.corsair.com/builder-series-cx600-v2-80plus-c...

Am now wondering whether it has the correct PCI-E cables for this card:

Yes, the Corsair has two PCI-Express 6+2-Pin connectors and your XFX HD7950 Double Dissipation AMD/ATI Graphics Card - 3GB only requires a single 6 pin PCI-E power and a single 8 pin (6+2) PCI-E power connector.

The four 4 pin connectors omaroma refers to are the molex connectors used for powering fans, DVD drives, etc... They can also be used for the HD7950 but this power supply already has connectors (6+2) specifically for this purpose.
