Max power consumption of 160W so you'll be fine.

really, why the hell does it need a 8 pin and 6 pin? I mean the 660 only needed one 6 pin?

Reference models only have 2x 6 pin connectors.

I'm aware that some have an 8 pin and a 6 pin, but Nvidia's reference design only has 2x6 pins. If yours has an 8 pin and a 6 pin, it was a manufacturer's decision, probably just to provide (75w) additional power for overclockers/custom coolers.

I have an ASUS OC version of the 760, and oddly enough it only needs a single 8-pin connector. I'm thinking about picking up a second one for SLI down the road. I have a Corsair 750W bronze PSU, which I think would be safe.

Single 8 pin = 150w
2x6 pin = 150w

Edit: Good 750w is plenty for SLi.
