Palit 9600GT sonic cable query

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I'm putting my old PC together for my little brother and have put in my very very old GPU, the above mentioned Palit 9600GT 'sonic' (he only wants to play Football Manager)...

I'm a little confused though. The card has a connector on the side and I am in the posession of a cable that connects to this (it has two wee holes) connector. I've found a potnetial match on the mobo where it will connect to...

Does anyone know what on earth this cable is actually for? I'm currently updating windows and the PC and it seems to boot fine without it...

Any insight will be greatly appreciated!

Yep, You need a special DVI-HDMI to use it though.
