    In relation to one of my forum posts about my GPU, i contacted the company that sold me the GPU, and recommended a PSU, it looked pretty solid but im not sure about the 6+2 PCI-E power connector, will it fit into my 8 pin PCI-E slot on my graphics card? or will i need a converter for that?

    (Here is the PSU they recommended, found on their site) [Link]

    A 6+2 pin IS an 8 pin lol! You can also get a converter for 2x 6 pin to make an 8 pin (Requires 2x 6 pins to equal an 8 pin)
