That PSU should be fine. One large 12v rail.

No, there is an adaptor they include that uses 2 x Molexs to 8 Pin PCI-e. then you'd also use one of your 6 pin PCI-e off the PSU to power the GPU.

You can see the adaptors included here -
i7-2600k @ 4.6Ghz, Zotac GTX 680 (1310/7000), 16GB DDR3 1600, 2 x 1TB Samsung F3 RAID 0, Windows 7 x64, CPU and GPU custom watercooled
