Sorry guys, I cannot find what model of Antec it is, I know it's at least 500 Watts. I can't get access to the side of the PSU that has all the info on it, I would have to rip everything out just to get it. As far is it being 8 PIN, no, both sides of it are 6 pin. I just want to know exactly what cable I need to hook my psu straight to the gpu so I DON'T have to use MOLEX connections. Is it like the first picture that I have on the previous page? What is it called exactly? Thank you for all of your help guys. redface.gif

It really is pretty critical for us to know what model PSU we're dealing with here in order to give you the best advice thumb.gif

There's probably been 30 different 500W and 550W 'Antec' PSU's, and it matters which one it is in this situation. Some such PSU's will 'support' two PCI-Ex cables being plugged in to it (in which case, it SHOULD have come with both ... did you save the contents of the box when you installed it?), and some will NOT.

Assuming you still have an empty 'jack' on the back of your PSU to plug in such a cable (normally on modular antec PSU's the jack for the pci-ex cables will be red if memory serves), by the look of things, this is what you need:

OP. I think what you pulled out is a modular 6pin pci-e.

one end plugs into your PSU the other into your video card. Look at everything that came with your PSU for another cable that is identical.
