    hi guys on the box of my graphics card it says 500w or greater psu with two 75w 6 pin pci express power connectors recommended but i can only find one of the cables - there are two 6 pin pci express sockets on the psu...

    the psu in question is a 520w hx corsair modular design.

    do i need both cables or will one suffice?

    You need the 2 mate, send Corsair an e-mail, tell them that you lost one of your pci e cables etc and they will send you a new 1 out. In the mean time, find your self 2 molex too pci e adapter.
