i have a question i am going to upgrade from a 9800gtx+ superclocked to the gtx 285, now my power supply has only 1 pci express power cord and the card comes with 2x6 pin Power Connectors can i use the one express power cord from my power supply and use one 6 pin power connector, or do i half to use both 2x6 connectors
 
You probably need to connect both 6-pin connectors. See the manual.
In the box there should be a 2 molex to 1 six pin connector. Use that for the missing 6-pin connector.
What is the wattage of your power supply?
 
Confusing post is confusing :??:

You will need to have both PCIe power plugs plugged in to use your new GPU.
What is your current PSU?
Please post the manufacturer, wattage and +12v amperage.
It is possible that your old PSU will not be up for the task of powering a GTX 285...
