Your power supply is missing the 8-pin PCIE plug. I have the same power supply, and I bought the card. It will not turn on with 2 6-pins. EVGA has been telling me that a 6 to 8-pin adapter will be a fire issue, and is unsafe, yet BFG ships such an adapter with their 9800GX2, so I don't know exactly how unsafe it is. I ordered an adapter, and I'm waiting on OCZ to let me know if it's going to be okay or not

If you want to know yourself, here is the OCZ thread I'm waiting for a reply in: http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/fo...ad.php?t=36171

A fire issue for not having enough power? I don't think that evga tech support guy knew what hes talking about.. it should work fine... many people used adapters on ATI's cards that used a 8 and 6 pin.

Check the prices of these ones: http://www.evga.com/forums/tm.asp?m=291124

There were tested and verified by EVGA

If only I saw that link before I ordered mine

I hope so too, but I've been hearing it all over the forums as well

Here is an email I got after complaining to their support

It does recommend 40amps on the positive 12v rail, if a PSU does not have this (or even if it does) and you adapt it to make it work – it simply will not. The PSUs that do have the actual 8 pin graphics plug (which is physically different from the chipset plug) along with the 6 pin pci-e plug are ample enough to run the card, which is a beast. I am very sorry that you have invested so much in the video card and are unable to use it, but as of right now our only recommendation is to upgrade the PSU even though on paper your PSU may be able to run it. If you have further questions or concerns you can email me directly.
I guess I'll really find out when I get the adapter, or the OCZ guy posts back
