I can't even picture in my head what you're talking about, try to explain your problem a little better I guess.

If I had to guess as to what you're talking about, are you saying the wires that connect the video card to the psu are too short or something?

The (usually white) plug is called a molex connector. This is the power plug that runs from the PSU (power supply unit) to the 6800.

I don't know about any links that would be near or on a PSU, or any blue connectors for that matter.

Might you be talking about the slot itself?
