I can't catch a break:( Was going to pull the trigger on the 6850 and read you need to 6-pin power connections.  I check my PSU and discover I only have one.  It came with 2, but I can't find the stinking other cord now.  It is a modular supply so cables unplug and have no idea where it is and from what I hear, my maker does not offer the ability to buy spare cables.  Nothing is easy.

Video cards usually come with an adapter that converts two 4 pin molex connections to a 6 pin connection. If not you can pick one up at your local shop.
