Default PSU connector question

Ok, newbie question but I just want to clarify.

MY PSU has one 8 pin adapter which I use for my motherboard.

Then it has a couple PCI-E adapters marked PCI-E. One of PCI-E adapters has 2 more pins you can clip back on to make it 8 pin. If I use that as an 8 pin will that work with the 280 GTX? It requires one 6 pin PCI-E and 1 8 pin PCIE. Just want to be 100% sure.

Thank you!

yes, that is exactly what the two extra pins are for.
