EVGA 8800 GTS 6 Pin PS Cable Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Sooo my 8800 came with a cable to run to the power supply, but it splits off into two female ends. My (modular) power supply came with a cable for PCI-E cards, and I'm wondering if I should use that. As I write this it seems the answer is obvious, and that I should run two seperate cables into the EVGA provided split-cable, but I'm not sure. Nervous first time builder

Thoughts?

Always use the 6 pin from the PSU if you have it. The adaptor is only for an emergency if you don't have one.
