I just bought n nVidia 9800GT 1gb Video Card PCI-E 2.0 DDR3, it came with a power connector, i'm confused about where to plug the connector into my motherboard? Can you guys help? Do you know of any available diagrams online that i could view? I have no clue where to plug it in or if i even need to.

the 9800 GT requires power from your power supply, the connector is packaged with the video card in case your power supply does not have a 6-pin PCI-E power connector. In that case, you would use the 4-pin molex connector (from the power supply), connect it to the adapter, then plug the adapter into the video card.
