Ok, the wires are the Molex Connectors to connect to the PSU Molex Connectors. That little white plug on the back allows you to use 2 monitors on the card for better productivity. That card does have it, so you can use 2 monitors: http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage....102-477-04.jpg (Adapter is in the middle of pic [not the yellow thing])
Those are power supply connectors. That card requires a lead from your power supply that is used solely for that card. You should have plenty of them on your power supply that aren't used.
Just a friendly note, whyare you so set on the Radeon? Just wondering because I won both an ATI Radeon 9800 PRo and a BFG Geforce 6800GT and the Geforce is way better than the Radeon. The 3Dmark on my GT surpases the Radeon by 100 at least on a benchmark test. Also, PNY technologies also makes excellent Geforce cards.
i guess im set on the radeon because all of my friends have them, and they all recomended them, i guess i will look into the Geforce. I had kinda just ruled it out though. All the replies in this post say geforce so...
Currently the 6600GT I'd go with is the Gigabyte Since the price there has dropped to 199.99 and free 2nd day shipping, I have read reviews on this card and it does just as good as any other 6600GT card, and overclocks well.
