79s is useful, yes. But that would be a 'suited gapper', not a suited connector.
Any two cards that are of the same suit and run consecutively
are suited connectors. Some have better chances of hitting than others - 4/5s up to 10/J have a couple of extra percent of catching straight draws - but all are similar strengths pre-flop as far as straight and flush possibilities.
Suited connectors can catch some excellent flops if you can see a board cheaply. And, strictly speaking, the lower your cards the more people will expect you to have missed the board, so the 3/4, and even the A/2 & 2/3 are worth trying out from time to time.
