    Hello,

    I received a EVGA GTX 970 for my birthday and it requires two 6 pin power connectors, so I bought two 6 pin power connectors off of Amazon (As shown in the picture below).

    I went to plug the cable into one of the 6 pin connector in the mac pro, but the connector is way to small (It is almost half the size of the 970 connector!). Ultimately, what cable do I need to run my 970 in my 2009 Mac Pro? If someone could link me to one that is proven to work reliably (Amazon preferred), it would be hugely appreciated.

    Thank you

    Is there an Amazon link by a chance?

    I have 2 of the cables from that Amazon link, and they work well.

    Great to hear! I ordered them just a few hours ago and they're expected to arrive this up coming Monday-Thursday.
