Just with those two parts I get this Potential Issues / Incompatibilities

1 additional PCI-Express 8-pin power connector is needed.

When I look up the spec on the PSU, it says this

1 x 24 / 20-Pin motherboard connector(550mm)

1 x 8 / 4-Pin EPS / ATX 12V connector(750mm)

1 x 8 / 4-Pin EPS / ATX 12V connector(550mm)

4 x 8 / 6-Pin PCIE connector(550mm)

8 x SATA connector(”600mm / 150mm / 150mm / 150mm” x 2)

6 x 4-Pin Peripheral connector (”600mm / 150mm / 150mm” x 2)

2 x 4-Pin Floppy connector(”600mm / 150mm / 150mm / 150mm” x 2)

If I read that right, I should have 4 available PCIE 8 pin connectors, and the video card only needs an 8 and a 6.

What am I missing?

Looks like PCPP has it listed with only 6-pin connectors for some reason. Should have it listed as 6+2 pin connectors.

Though, there are good quality PSUs at that wattage for less.

Yea, I was more looking for small compact PSU's first, and then comparing price later, and noticed that my compatibility filter was filtering this one out.
