Default Installing a 5770 video card

Hi guys. I recently purchased an xfx 5770, along with some other new parts. I'm just about done installing everything, except for one thing.

When installing the xfx 5770, do I connect it directly to the power supply using a 1 x 6 pin or do I use the two molex pci-e adapters that came with the card?
Do I connect the card with these connectors or can I just connect it directly to the power supply?

Use the 6 pin pci-e connector on your psu. The adapter is there only if you do not have a 6pin connector then you have to use molex connections.
