Ok, I'm wondering about compatibility issues... Well not really issues as solutions and idea...

I just bought an HD 4890 xfx graphics card and I need 2 6pin connections... what I am wondering is, in the description for my psu (modular mind you) one of the cables is a 6pin xeon connections... First I am wondering what this connection is for, and second can it be convert it so I can use it with my Graphics card? I know I can take 4 pin connections and convert them into 6 pin for the card. I am also wondering if it matters if I use separate connections from the powersupply for each 6pin converting connector (different 4 pin slots when plugging into the psu). I am concerned about the amount of power it needs to pull from each, kinda of like how a breaker works in a house... can't plug too much into one plug or you blow a fuse... thanks guys, always a big help.
