Hi,
I have a question regarding which power connectors to use with my graphics card. I'm installing an EVGA GeForce GTX 275 1792 MB card into my first-build system. It comes with two cables that fit into the two power ports on the card, and each cable has a black, PCI E six-hole plug that leads to two, white, hexagonal connectors with three prongs in each. My Corsair PSU has several PCI E plugs that have the six-hole plug along with a little two-whole plug dangling next to it from the same cable. Should I use the cables that came with the card that lead to the white plugs, and plug those white plugs into matching connectors coming from the PSU, or should I use the PSU's own PCI E cables? Thanks. Tom

Use the two six pin PCI-e connectors coming from your power supply.
