I need another power cable to run from my psu to one of the cards. I have a Corsair TX750M PSU. Where can I find http://www.corsair.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/im... <that cable for sale. I've been looking online for a while and have yet to see it anywhere except Corsair's Modular Cable packages which retail at $80. I only need the one cord.

So did you not get it with your PSU?

Your PSU should have already have four PCI-E cables coming out of the box.

It only comes with two cables with each cable having two (6+2)-pin PCI-E connectors on them for a total of four PCI-E connectors.

The OP should contact Corsair and explain the situation and they just might be pleasantly surprised.

If you only have 1 PCI cable your psu is messed up and you may need to contact the manufacturer if its saposed to have 2. Also you can get a molex converter and if your worried about running the molex because they're kind of ugly you can get extensions to run from the gpu to the converter so it can be out of the way
