Noob question on installing xfx6850

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My psu is a rosewill hive650. It has two 6+2 pci connectors, the xfx6850 has two 6 pin connections. How do I install? Do I install just one of the 6 pin connectors? Do I need to install the two 6+2 pci connectors? Or do I have the wrong psu?

Thanks!

You have to plug both in.

EDIT: Go with the above suggestion.

Plug both 6 pins in but you do not need to plug in the +2.
