So I am buying a new graphics card for diablo.
I am getting this one hopefully but there is something I need to know as I am not to good with graphic cards.
Go to that link and left click the image. On the right side of the window that opens there will be two rows of pictures (3 pictures in each row). Click on the picture on the bottom of the middle row. Then look at the two black boxes with two rows of three (male or female) connectors.
Can anyone please tell me what they are and what they are used for?
***I opened my computer up earlier and my graphic card did not have them.

Just in-case that I do not have the required power supply for the card could you tell me what the two white ends would plug into? I understand that it would plug into something from the power supply, correct? Also, a name of the wire/cord would be helpful.
Once again sorry for the nooby questions.
If your power supply does not have the necessary PCI-E power plugs, I wouldn't try running that GTX 560 on your power supply. Not having the necessary PCI-E power plugs 99% mean it can't handle the graphics card.
But if you don't mind risking your entire computer + power supply trying to run GTX 560 on such a inferior power supply, these white plugs go into the molex connectors on the power supply.
8? Wow. Especially if it's a Dell... yes, you are right. Time for a new computer indeed.
You should check out the PC build guide I have over at the WoW forums when you do, so you don't get something that you have to upgrade very soon again.
