...I only have (1x)6pin +(1x) 6/2pin connectors for my Thermaltake TR2 RK 750w PSU, and My Sapphire R9 290x GPU says it recommends 2x 8pins, yet I've been using only the 6pin for my 2x6pin Sapphire HD 6950/70 for 5 yrs no problem...
The reason I ask is that I'm guessing I might have to RMA either my GPU or DVI-D to VGA, because I hooked both up in my Rig, yet the fans on my GPU was working, but my monitor didn't boot, so I'm thinking it was the DVI-D to VGA, as it was reputed to malfunction quite a bit per user review.
