    I cannot seem to locate it. My PowerMac had a 6600LE so it didn't come with the cable. Now I've purchased a 7800GT and I'm trying to make a cable but I don't know where it plugs into the board. I already have a cable with the PCIE connector on the video card.

    Thanks!

    if memory serves me,you will need the PCI-E power cable and according to this picture, you plug it in near the upper left on the logicboard.

    thanks reddrag0n.

    raysfan, given my previous experience i would agree with you but the G5 doesn't have a big bundle of cables coming out of the PSU like a PC does.
