I plan on running dual 4870's once I upgrade to a single 6970 in my main rig. The 4870's I have require two 6-pin connections. They each shipped with a molex to 6-pin adpaters, I just need to find them. I'll run one card off the PCI-E connections included and another off molex connections. I think I'll be fine. I'm only running a 95W CPU and single HDD and DVD-RW anyway so 700W shouldn't be an issue my main rig has a lot more than that and doesn't go past a 650W draw at 100% load.
