  1. Your PSU link is broken, which PSU model?
  2. Its a seagate x650
  3. Best answer
    They really look like the same card with different power connectors. Weird.

    If you meant Seasonic X650, not Seagate, it shouldn't matter which, since your PSU would have 4 6+2 connectors, which can be used as either 6 or 8.
  4. If you mean Seasonic X650 then you can get either one, that PSU has 4 PCIe 6/8 pin cables available if you still have the bag of cables for it.
  5. Alright thank you guys just wante to make sure i didnt mess up on the last pice for my computer.
