one last question, the gpu is said to use two 6 pin connector. however, the gpu provided me with two 5 pin connector. instead, i used an actual two 6 pin connector provided with my mobo. also, the one provided with the gpu extends out into two 3 pin connector.
If you have a 700 Watt PSU then you should not be using adapter cables provided by the video card or the motherboard. Anything over 600 Watts is definitely an enthusiast level PSU and should have twin PCI-E 6 pin cables already hardwired. There should be no need for adapters.
If you have a modular power supply then use those cables.
