I've just got MSI GTX 660 Twin Frozer and it has just a single 6 pin connector. My PSU has 2 x 12V rails 18 amps each. Can I run this card with this psu, are the connections suitable? The PSU is OCZ500SXS; how do I connect the card to it?

Can I run this card with this psu

Yes

Your power supply is of adequate power to run your graphics card. There is a 6-pin PCI-E connector connected to your PSU, it is labeled PCI-E and may actually be a 4-pin + 2-pin connector. THIS is the connector you will use to plug into the 6-pin port on the front of the graphics card.

Plugging in the connector into the graphics card and then turning on the PC and watching it boot is the next step.
