that psu would be able to power that card. but from what the above guy said, it doesnt have the connectors avalible. But i am sure there would be some converters to power the card

thanks for the reply, how do i know how many connectors i've got, i have found for UK not from newegg as they don't deliver to the UK. If you could explain would be great thanks again :D

if it is this - PCI-Express Connector - 1 x 6-Pin, 1 x 6+2-Pin
i am pretty sure the other psu has that aswell

Edit again: i have realised the others are 1 x 8-pin along with 1 x 6+2
could you please find me the version you found but for UK? thanks again
 
Yep, thats it.
It didn't, the 450W only had one 6+2pin connector. While the 550W has a 6pin and a 6+2pin connector.

You can use PCI-Molex adapters (iv even seen SATA to PCI adapters), but I prefer not to use them. Rather not put the Molex rail under a load it wasn't intended for.

The HD 7850 requires only one PCI Express 6 Pin cable and not two.
