I thought i'd ask in a separate thread as the questions were going off topic, couldn't find a specific thread for parts and pc building. my new build is practically done ,got the graphics card through today and a little confused at the power connections. with the card I received this small lead; its barely long enough to reach the psu and has 2x 6 hole/pin connections on it. the slots which it goes into though have 1x 6 hole/pin and 1x 8 hole/pin... so i'm not sure which slots I should connect into? I don't think the lead which came with it will reach the psu although the psu came with spare power leads (much higher quality and longer) which are labelled specifically for use with "pci express". the thing is that they have even less pins than the lead which the card came with. there is quite a few though, I think I have 4 in total and an additional 5th one which has another socket specifically stating "sli ready" as well connectors labelled "pci express" (it splits into two sets of sockets). so I was wondering since I have 4 leads and only 2 graphics card slots .do I use 2 of the leads that came with the psu for each card? how should I connect them up? which bits go into where?
