Default does power supply met vid card requirements

I've got a question regarding a power supply I bought today. I need to know if it meets the requirements of the vid card I'm looking at buying.

This is the PSU I bought today:

Micro Center - LS 550 Watt ATX EPS/12V Power Supply (not that price)

and this is the vid card I'm looking at:

Newegg.ca - EVGA 896-P3-1258-A1 GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 SSC Edition 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

my biggest concern is the card says it needs: Two 6-pin PCI Express power connectors or four available hard disk power connectors

Does that power supply cover that? I'm not real sure what they mean by (1) PCI Express 6+2-pin Power Connector

The PSU is going into a Dual Core system with a Sata drive.

Figured I better find out now because they said I can return the PSU if it's not the right one.

Thanks
