Correct PSU?

I'm buying a new graphics card, which is a MSI GTX 460 Cyclone OC Edition 1GB GDDR5. I your help to check if i've got the right power supply unit. I have a OCZ 600W MODXSTREAM PRO POWER SUPPLY, But I'm not sure if i've got the right pins to connect the graphics card into the power supply.

Thanks in advance

You're OK.

OCZ 500W-700W ModXStream Pro Power Supply OCZ Technology

It has one 6 pin PCI-E power connectorm, plus one 6+2 (usable as either a 6 pin or 8 pin).

The card:

MSI USA – Computer, Laptop, Notebook, Desktop, Mainboard, Graphics and more

uses two 6 pin PCI-E connectors. (The highest-powered cards I know of at the moment, GTX480 or Radeo 3970, use one 6 pin and one 8 pin power connector. Total card power: 300W max, including the PCI-E X16 slot.)

Two 6-pin PEG power connectors to the graphics card. Most PSUs after 2008 have these connectors as standard.
