Do power supplies come with a 6 pin PCI connector?

I'm planning on buying a power supply and was wondering if the 6 pin connector would come with it.

The power supply is a Thermaltake - TR2-600NL2NC ATX12V & EPS12V.

    Usually yes- but how many depends upon the particular power supply model.

    Generally, higher capacity power supplies provide the PCI-E connector(s). For example, most 300-350 watt power supplies don't have any dedicated PCI-E cable. At 400 watts it's a mixed bag, many PSUs have them but really cheap models don't. At 500 watts most PSUs provide at least one PCI-E connector, and better models provide two. At 600 watts it's standard for PSUs to provide two or more cables, although cheaper models may only provide one.

    Speaking of poor, I suggest getting a different power supply. Thermaltake's TR2 series is a low-quality line. In fact, Thermaltake is a mediocre brand when it comes to PSUs- only their Toughpower models are highly regarded, the rest are average or worse. That one you're considering falls into Tier 5 (worst)

    Here's a compilation of reviews on Thermaltake power supplies:

    I couldn't find reviews for that specific model, but here's the 750W TR2:

    Read the whole thing if you like, or navigate to page 9 for the painful conclusions.

    If possible stick with Antec, Corsair, XFX, Seasonic, Silverstone, OCZ, Enermax or Lepa. Those are excellent brands. Even Corsair's cheaper Builder Series (CX) models beat any of the bottom-tier units.
