Default PSU PCIe Pins and compatibility; questions for upgrades.

Hello,

Im looking into buying:

Newegg.com - Intel BOXDP67BGB3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Newegg.com - Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-900 900W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Newegg.com - EVGA 012-P3-1571-AR GeForce GTX 570 HD w/Display-Port (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

The PSU provides the 24 Pin connector needed to power the motherboard, but my main concern was the compatibility between the PCI pins. The PSU comes with 4 6(+2) PCIe pins. If I have a PCI or PCIe card that only needs a 6 pin connector, will it work with the ones provided by the PSU?

Yeah, the 6+2-pin connectors just have the extra 2 pins hanging off, easy to push them to the side and just use the 6.
