A bit unsure how to hook the power supply up to the video card

graphics cardpower supply

I'm putting together a new machine for the first time in quite a while, and I've hit a snag.

My new power supply is the EVGA SuperNOVA 1000W P2 80 PLUS PLATINUM.

My new graphics card is the EVGA GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition.

The power ports for the graphics card look like this:

The back of the power supply looks like this:

Pretty simple, right? Hook 2 8-pin VGA connectors up to the 8-pin ports on the card?

However, the graphics card came with 3 cables:

The cable on the right plugs into the 6-pin port on the graphics card. The other end of it has 2 3-pin power connectors. The middle and left cables plug into the 8-pin ports of the graphics card. The other ends of them have 2 6-pin connectors.

So now I'm confused about how to power this graphics card. I think you have to use the supplied cables to supply enough power to the card, but I'm not sure how to connect them to the PSU.

Best Answer

Your PSU comes with 6x 6+2 Pin PCI-E connectors. No need to use the cables that came with your graphics card.
