Question Mystery Wires

I bought a new tower in 2008. Its a Compaq Presario SR5710F. It has a 1250 Watt power supply. I have put in a new secondary 400 GB hard drive (Works Great). A VGA/DVI/HDMI XFX ONE video card. A super speed USB 3.0 PCI Express Card. A second fan. but now I'm left with two wires. and I don't quite know what they do. I feel like I mine as well find something to do with them. So If anyone could help me that would be great. At least just tell me what I could use them for.

The question is,
What are these two wires for?

It comes with a 250w PSU. Which GPU did you buy specifically? Depending on the model, you might be overloading the PSU.

Those two are floppy power connectors.

Haven't seen a functional floppy drive or that connection in years.

Did you put it in there yourself? Because if not, it comes with a 250w PSU as specified by their site.

From the picture, that appears to be the stock psu, which is in-fact a 250w PSU...
