I have a noob ques for you guys. I just got my Asus GTX 570 Direct CU II and the card only came with 1 wire a 8pin at 1 end for the card and it breakes off into 2 6pins for the power supply. when I turned on my system the 2 fans are turning on the card but black screen, but when I looked at some of the 1st posts the cards are plug in with 1 8pin and 1 6pin! I do have 2 extra 6pin wires that came with my 850W power supply.
Ques: should I or do I use the wire that comes with the card 8pin at 1 end that plugs into the card and the other end splits into 2 6pins for power supply. Then use 1 of the extra 6pin PCI-E wires that comes with the power supply to plug into the card? So what I will have if I look at the power supply 3 6pin connected and on the card the 1 8pin connected and 1 6pin connected?
Thanks for your time.
