can't figure out where my GPU power adapter (I think it is, anyway) goes

The yellow and black is what I'm talking about.

I got the one end with the 6 heads (right end) to go into my graphics card no problem, but the other end I just have no freaking clue. I can't find any ports that the left side plug goes with. My GPU is a Sapphire HD 7850 if needed to know.

  1. I think you got the wrong link.
  2. @Stu 95 Good catch lol! Forgot that I was working on a essay for Government class.

  3. I'm going to guess that's a four pin molex connector from your power supply. Of course, if your power supply has a six-pin PCI-E power cable already, you wouldn't need to use the cable in your image.

  4. @Wolfshadow but do I need any cable to connect the GPU then? Or is nothing fine?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I didn't read your post right. Thx for the help!

    No. The graphics card requires an external power connection. I'm just saying the only reason to use the cable you linked is if your power supply does not have a PCI-E power cable already.

    If your power supply has a PCI-E power cable, you'd connect that to the graphics card.
    If it does not have a PCI-E power cable, then you'd use the cable you linked; connected to a four-pin molex connector on your power supply.
