Need help with SLI

Hey guys,

So this is my first time going SLI and I am still a bit of a noob when it comes to these types of hardware configurations, so please forgive me if this is a dumb question.

I have received my second Gigabyte GTX 570 OC and noticed that I do not have enough PCIe connectors to connect both cards. Do I simply buy two more PCIe female to female connectors and connect them to my power supply and from there to my second card?

What other options do I have to connect my second card (if any)? I would really like to have everything setup tonight already, but it does not seem possible, unless I am missing something and going about this all wrong?

Thanks for your time.

For what its worth, my specs are as follows:

i7 960 @ 3.2GHz
Asus Rampage ||| Extreme
Gigabyte GTX 570 OC edition (now x2 of these)
Corsair HX1000w modular PSU
12gb Corsair vengeance RAM

  1. Yes, just buy some more of those adapters.
    Usually most graphics cards gives you one additional adapter for that (although it would be nice if there was two).
