Default PSU Vid Card Compatibility

Evening all.
I've got a quick question I have a psu with every possible connection but a 2x6 Pin connection. I need a compatable vid card but I don't know where else to look I've been looking for something around a 265-285. If someone can help me I would appreciate it.
PSU
Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan - DirectCanada

That Psu has 4-6 pin pci-express connectors. They list it kind of confusing, but the 8 pin pci-e cable are also 6-pin.

So you'll have no problem with basically any video card.

Make sure you have a big case. That PSU has ALOT of cables.

Hey guys thanks for the responses and I do have a Coolermaster CM690 so I should have more than enough space.

If you're not in too much of a hurry, you might wait for one of the new corsair HX (modular) models to go on sale...... :)

I just upgraded my vx450 to the tx750 today and spent about 15 minutes trying to get the case closed, while still keeping a nice looking cable configeration.
