Default XFX GeForce GTX 280 670M

Hey guys,

I've just bought a XFX GeForce GTX 280 670M but my power supply (Chieftec CFT-620A 620W ATX2) has 6-pins and no 8-pins.
Now I know other cards came with a converter so you can use it with such a power supply anyway, but this XFX card didn't come with such cables and had a card saying this instead:

"XFX does not support the use of two 6-pin to one 8-pin power cable converter for these graphic cards. They are only designed to work with high performance power supplies using 8-pin PCI Express power cable"

Now I'm wondering why it would work with for example a MSI or EVGA card and not with a XFX card. Also if it DOES work, I'd like to know (saves me the hassle of buying a new power supply)

thx in advance
