I just installed my new EVGA GTX 280, and I notice they have a flyer in the box recommending you get a PSU with an 8-pin power connector. Now my PSU has two six pin connectors, and its a single rail, so I used one six pin for the six pin port, and then I used the molex (4-pin) adapter and the other six pin for the 8-pin adapter. Since it's a single rail PSU, with plenty of juice, with only two fans on the molex line, I don't expect there to be any problems. But I wanted to get a second opinion.

So, should I upgrade my PSU? (I'd rather not)

no i think youll be fine... i upgraded mine since i had an enermax 535W which may not be able to handle a quad core at 3.6 and a gtx 280... i bought an enermax infiniti 720W

If you have a 750watt PCPnC 750w ,you should'nt have no problems.
