3 pin power for Dell Precision 490

I want to replace my graphic card (NVS 285, really sucks) in the dell precision 490 with a EVGA 8800GS 384MB.

The problem is the fan on the 8800GS has a 3 pin power cable which I can't find in my 490.

Any guys has an idea how can I solve this issue?

Thanks a lot.

I have the Dell Precision WS 490, and it does not have a 6-pins power cable to power the graphics card 8800GS.

If you are willing to replace the PSU with one that has the power cable, it will work. Mine is in a BTX case.
