Pics are needed. If you say "green lights" I am thinking GX2 especially with the SPDIF connector you are talking about.

I thought so. 9800 GX2.

YOu will need to plug in BOTH the 8-pin AND the 6-pin or it will not work. I pair of 6-pin connectors will not work either...you NEED an 8-pin or a 6+2-pin connector.

No. It will not work off of that. You can however buy an adaptor from BFG for it. I think it is $6 USD and it adapts a 6-pin into 8-pin by adding a pair of Ground connectors.
