    Yes, and by the way that connector should have come with your new card
    Check the packaging (although newish, may have been the issue there;) )

    Ok, I'll have to have a dig around and look for the packaging, it's around here somewhere....
    Thanks

    It should have came with the card, but if it didn't, you probably still dont' need to buy one. Ask someone who has bought a computer or a video card in the last 3-4 years or go by a shop and ask if they'll give you one. I have about 6 of them lying around just from buying a video card about once every 2 years.
