So the other day I received my CyberpowerPC Gamer Ultra GUA250 AMD FX-4100 Gaming Desktop PC. Everything works fine, the only dislike is the gfx card, but I had already planned on switching it out with a 9800 GT from my old Desktop, the only issue is that the 9800 must be connected to the power supply, and it turns out there are no wires to connect the card to the power supply with. I do have a cable that has two 4 pin plug ins with one of the pins being an open slot on both on one side and a 6 pin plug in on the other, the 6 pin would plug into the card (I do not know the technical term for this cord, that's the best description I can give). Anyone have any suggestions? I would prefer cheap ones, but I'm willing to spend some money if I must.

Both of those cards fantastik250 listed are an upgrade on the 9800 but if you want to be able to use the 9800 then upgrade that you'll need to first buy a PSU.
If you only need a PSU wit one PCI-E connector. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
If you need a PSU with two PCI-E connectors. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

This could allow you to upgrade to a much better GPU in the future (don't want to mention one without knowing your budget first because there are so many).

The connecter you are asking about is a molex 4 pin if you have two of them that are free coming from your PSU then you could use them that way or you can get a a pass through molex connecter.

What that would do would allow you to tap in to one that is being used for something else. I will link you to such a thing. Here are the molex cables that are a Y type so use two Y types from different molex's.

Then you can connect one end to your molex to one Y and the other molex to the other Y. This way you havn't taken away another piece of hardwears power. If this is too confusing then the best bet is to upgrade your PSU. Good luck to you.
