Yes, for the 9800GTX to operate properly, you'll need to use both 6 pin connectors.

The 9800GT would be an excellent upgrade from your 7600. Depending on the rest of your system, Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 should run extremely well @ 1280x1024.

yeah you have to use both pin connectors. i doubt the card would even power up if you didn't, i'm sure you'd get POST errors on startup.
