I am getting the GTX 560ti card. It is my first time ever getting a graphics card, so im confused. It comes with two-6 pin power connectors, seen in these images. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... My question is the card has two slots on the back to fit these two 6pin power connectors, but do you plug both in? and where does the other ends plug into the power supply? Im terribly confused and can't seem to find instructions for these wires. They say the card can't run without them :(  Please help me out guys. Thanks.

Have the card. Need both plugged in. I have a modular power supply, and with this the cable for the graphics card had two 6-pin ends to it and the other end plugs into one of the spaces in the PSU.

What PSU do you got? Ensure that you got at least 500w PSU for you to run the card.

I believe it is more advisable to use the 6-pin PEG connectors that come with your PSU than those molex to 6-pin cables. And any decent 500w PSU nowadays usually have two of them installed.

That would do. Use the 2 x 6-pin PCI-E connectors that comes with your PSU.
