A power supply to support rumored 8 PIN RX VEGA

I'm currently waiting for the Rx Vega, but rumors says it will need a 8 pin connect instead of 6. That kinda scares me since i cant find a decent one that is around 700-850w but when i do its over 140$. The one I have now says 6+2 GPU 4+4 CPU. Judging from that i cant be sure if I'll run 2 pins short to support the Vega cards. I never built a pc before so I dont know the basics yet. I'm looking at the corsair 750x if Vega supports 6 pin which I'll be happy with but I would like to be sure.

6+2 GPU = 8 pin

But Rumours are rumours. Better wait for facts when amd launches vega.

Thanks but I still dont understand when it says 4+4 for the CPU. Does it mean it takes it all or not?

Some mobos have 4 pins and some have 8 pins for the cpu. 4+4 means you can split the connector when having a mobo with 4 pins and when you have 8 pins you keep the connector together.
