PSU and high end GFX cards

Right, im confused, the new generation cards nvidia 2xx recommend a psu of at least 680w and 12 v rail with 48A now i have been on scan and only a small handfull of large 600w+ psu have the correct stats according to card manufacturers, what connections do these new cards actully use is it the new 6+2 pci-e connectors and how many of them, as my computer fund is approaching the, number of pennies saved up = new computer time

Thanks in advance

My new 5850 uses 2x 6 PCI-E power connectors. Be sure to check out 'The Wop Rebuild' thread for the PSU I grabbed.

Cant go wrong with the Corsair PSU's, modular, and come with a very comprehensive package of cables etc.
