    Order a sapphire 6870 for my early 2008 model (as well as a new 1 tb harddrive, which i also have some questions about but i'll make another post for that).

    I want to purchase from amazon and im hoping these are the right cables:

    These cables i think are also acceptable

    Anyway, i just want to confirm that the cables will work. Trying to do all this research myself and i know there are a whole litany of questions regarding graphics cards.

    Edit: realized the cables i wanted to purchase weren't the right ones.
