Gday this is my first build
I opend my ANEC High Current Pro 750w 80 plus Gold wich is modular.
The back of the ANTEC has 4 red sockets labled PCIE but I could only find 1 socket to go into them.
It is advertised as 4 x 40a, I thought ther would be 4 lots PCIE wireing ?

Congratulations, you've just invalidated your warranty and any comeback you may have had should your power supply fail.

And don't tell them what that you tried those cables/connectors on different sockets just to find which one fits, it will help you keep your warranty. Just state the basic information of what's not in the box and what you need, all other information is to be kept unless asked. :)

Antec has 2 x ( 6+2 ) but there in parralel ALL IN THE 1 WIRING BUNDEL . Not 1 lot of ( 6+2 ) and a 2nd lot of ( 6+ 2) to plug into a differant socket on the Antec . So I have 4 PCIE sockets in the back of the Antec EACH CAPABLE OF 40 AMPS , But with the wiring bundel I am suposed to runn all my GPUs off 1 socket , AND LEAVE 3 PCIE SOCKETS EMPTY ?

You can just plug the spare 6+2 power connect and leave it tied in the case unused if you only have 1 GPU that requires a 6pin or 8 pin connector.

2 x pcie connectors on a strand that is permanently attached
2 x pcie connectors on a modular cable
Fine for pretty much any dual card configuration ( I'd want a bigger psu if I was doubling up on dual gpu cards )
You can buy spare modular cables if you need them
