I very recently bought the EVGA Geforce GTX 275 Graphics card, but to give it power, i have to plug some cords that come with it into the graphics card, and then into the computer's "power source" there is nothing inside of my computer i can plug these up to, do i have to buy something else for it or something? please help!

Sounds like you need a 4 pin molex "Y" connector. Female X male/male...... maybe 2 of them... ??

I hate adapters for this kind of thing. You bought a top of the line graphics card. Buy a top of the line PSU.

Pull out the PSU manual and ensure that the adapters you pull are split across rails (assuming you have more than one). It is easy to starve a card (or other things) for power if you don't connect these things correctly.

Can you tell us your PSU specs (brand, model, 12v wattage if available)?
