Building computer, cant turn screen on.

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.

    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 :)
  2. great card btw, gtx 770 is awesome and great build, nice looking too
  3. ah just read it nvm, so is that picture outdated or did you split the wire and try plugging them in then?
  4. Thank you so much! it helped, (i think) Me and my friend got it fixed anyway sooo... Thanks again!
