Main problem: Cant turn my screen on, when computer is completed.

So I've completed my computer. But a problem appeared when i turned on my computer for the first time. It said that i had to plug my PCI-E wire from the PSU to the GPU. My GPU also came with a wire. The wire have a 8 pin which i believe is supposed to be plugged in the GPU. The 8 pin leads out in two wires, each of the two wires is 6 pins. I believe that the 6 pins is supposed to be plugged into the PCI-E wire. So all that above is done, but as i said before i got this problem.

Specs:

Msi Z77A G43 GAMING
I5-3570K 3.4 GHz
Corsair CX600M
4x2 Corsair hyber beast 2133 Ghz.
Corsair H70 watercooling.
Gainward Geforce GTX 770
SATA seagate 400 GB

I also got a NZXT Sentry LX fan controller.

Second last picture is the wire which i got with my GPU, and is plugged into the PCI-E wires, from the PSU.

basically de attach the two six pin wires which make the 8 pin power connecter for your GPU and then there should be two on each wire dangling loose so you put one 6 pin connector in and then one 6 and one 2 together in the 8 pin section, i had the same prob as well, its stupid :)
