I've nearly completed my first build without any problems so far and have just installed the GPU, but I was just wondering which PCI- E cable I should use?

I've bought these cables:

Can I use just one of pigtail cables, or do I need to use two separate PCI- E cables from the PSU to the GPU?

It sounds like a stupid question, but I just need to be sure.

if you have a corsair psu, then you should already have those.

about your question, it is safer to use one for each. that is why you see them like that, just 2 ends, one goes to the psu the other to the gpu (6+2)
