The 6pin end goes into your card and if you have an extra converter cable.. if you need it use it if you dont need it dont use it.. your PSU have a 6 pin connector? if so.. then plug that in.. if it has only 8pin and one 6pin then use the converter from 8 to 6 there. so if you are SLi then you have two cards needing 6pin or 8pin
