What cable to I need to power graphics card?

I bought a Referb 09 Mac Pro. I purchased a Gigabyte HD Radeon 6850. The Power cable that came with that card is obviously for a PC. I just need to know what cable I need and where I can get it.

Or do I just need to buy one of the "official supported" ATIs?

Thank You for anyones help
