Msi GTX 970 4G Gaming Power question.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I see that the card comes with both an 8pin and a 6pin power connector. Can you use either or both or?

The reason I ask is that I have one coming in on Monday and I wanted to pick up a sleeved cable this weekend for it to match my other cables. Not sure which one I'll need.

Thanks in advance.
