    That PSU came with both 6 and 8 pin adapters for the vid card...
    Also the card itself shipped with a Molex to 6 pin adapter so you should be good to go.

      Hi,


      Thankyou!, Would my psu be good enough to power the graphics card?

      It's not a top end PSU...however it should be sufficient for that card.
