My question is simple. Will all of these components work together without an issue? I have some concern about the video card. Does it require any kind of hook up to the motherboard via wire/cable?

ASUS P5N-E SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard

XFX HD-677X-ZNLC Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

1 x OCZ GameXStream OCZ600GXSSLI 600W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply

I already have the mobo and power supply, am just looking for a cheap improvement to the system and this video card seems spot on.

The graphics card will go in the first PCIe slot, the blue one.

So I shouldn't have an issue with the components then? I do know how to install a video card I was just worried about the mobo not having an additional hook up that the video card would need. I've had the mobo for four years.

Your mobo slots appear to be PCIe 1.0; since they don't say what version, one must assume there was only the one when they wrote the specs. Your card is PCIe 2.1. This should present no problem other than perhaps the card running a bit slower than it would in a 2.1 slot. Your PSU has the right 6-pin connector for your video card. You're good to go.
