Does XFX Radeon HD 7750 1GB graphics card need a 6 pin connector?

Hi everyone, I have a question about my new build. My graphics card XFX Radeon HD 7750 1GB doesn't come with a 6 pin connector.
Does it require one to power on? I have a no input signal on my monitor when I boot my build. All the fans turn on, even the graphics card fan and led lights work. I have a Corsair 430W ATX12V that comes with a 2 and 6 pin power connector but the card has no reciever.

Here are my components: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/SeraphxIDGAF/saved/#savedbuild_817842

Thank you all so much for helping, I have been a proud member of Tom's Hardware forums :D

    The 7750 is powered exclusively by the PCI slot, therefore it doesn't require a 6 pin connector. If all you see is a black screen make sure that you have to display cord plugged into the graphics card. If it is plugged into the motherboard it may not show anything because the pc recognizes that a gpu is plugged in and will try to output through that. Also try downloading the drivers for your card. They can be found on the manufacturers website.

    My monitor cable is vga on both ends, but my graphics card reciever is a dvi. Do I have to buy a compatible cable for the monitor?

    If you have to use VGA, you will need one of these: http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-DVI-Cable-Adapter-DVIVGAMF/dp/B000067SOH
    One usually comes with the higher-end cards if the card has no discrete VGA port.
    Doesn't your monitor have a DVI port as well as a VGA?

    Thanks, I'm afraid not. My monitor is pretty ancient haha. But I'm going to order a adapter now. thank you all!
  5. Hey I have the same problem and I think this suggestion might help, only problem? How can I download the drivers if the display won't turn on? I've tried turning it on by removing the GPU and using the VGA on the motherboard but I think the MOBO still thinks it should run the images on my GPU? any suggestions?
