Which power cable for my Corsair HX750?

Okay, so here's the deal. I just moved to BC last week, so I've been getting settled in and unpacking, etc. And I was just getting my computer ready to go when I realized I put two very similar power cables in the same box. I know one is for my Dell 24" LCD and the other is for my Corsair HX750 power supply, the problem is, I don't know which is which.

The writings on them differ slightly, and even though I imagine that either would work, I want to avoid any problems in the long term because of the wrong amperage, or something. (Honestly, I don't know much about the electrical eng. aspects, so excuse my ignorance.)

Cable #1 — 13A 125V~
Writing on the cable itself also mentions "105ºC 300V"
This cable is also thicker than the other.

Cable #2 — 10A 125V
"60ºC 300V"
Thinner and longer.

So yeah, I'm about 90% sure that Cable #1 is for my power supply. But hey, it doesn't hurt to ask, right?

Ya it's cable #1, though they should both work fine i would beileve. Granted i too am not well verse in the electrical side of cables as to why one wouldn't work with the PSU. As long as it can get enough power to the PSU from the wall i wouldn't expect an issue.

My Corsair HX750's AC power cable is 14GA which is way thicker and shorter than the AC power cable connected to my 30-inch Samsung SyncMaster 305T Plus LCD.
