I am in the middle of my first system build and have a quick question. My PSU is a Seasonic X-Series 650W 80+ Gold and my video card is an EVGA GTX460. The video card needs two 6 pin power connectors. My PSU has all modular cables. I am wondering which cable I should use.
One cable has 8 pins on the PSU end and it splits into two separate 6+2 cables. The 6 pin + 2 pin cables are labeled PCI-E. I have never worked with 6+2 pins. Do I simply plug in each of the two 6 pin connectors and leave the two 2-pin connectors hanging lose and unconnected? This means I will have one 8 pin cable from the PSU powering the card.
