A question such as this shouldn't be posed to a forum. You should be asking the manufacture of the vid card. If someone here were to give you incorrect infomation and your card got damaged... then what?
Is this true and safe?

(Minimum recommended power supply with +12 Volt current rating of 40 Amp Amps.)
An available 6 pin PCI-E power connector and an available 8 pin PCI-E power connector
Power Connector 6 pin / 8 pin
thats in the system requirements. I wouldn't listen to those other guys, and get a power supply, that has a 6 and a 8 pin connector. You are gonna spend that much and ur graphics card, why risk something like, that and it could break the card and not be covered by warranty. Just spend a bit more money on a better psu

I found a 6 to 8 pin PCI Express adapter that I think that will do a much better job than the molex adapters. Since then I would just be using my two 6 pin PCI Express cables to power up my card. So then I can use my 6 pin to 6 pin and the convert the other 6 pin to and 8 by adding the xtra ground wires.
Here the link to the cable in case anyone else ever needs to find one 6 pin PCI Express to 8 pin PCI Express 2.0 adapter
