    Gtx295 problem -> power?


    Hey guys

    I just purchased a Zotac gtx295...
    I currently have a Unib EN-750VP 750w psu

    I don't know much about power supply at all. When i read the reqs for the gtx295 it said a 680w psu.... which i have...
    But when i switch on the pc i see nothing on my screens.

    I have connected the auxilliary power through a 6-pin cable.
    I'm hoping my problem has something to do with my stupidity rather than a faulty card.

    the psu specs are here. Do one of these cables only carry an 18A current maybe, and i need to merge three of them to get over the 47A 12V requirement of the card?

    Also there is a 1-pin GND and 1-pin SPDIF connector on the card which i haven't connected, as i thought this shouldnt affect its fundamental functionality..

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me out
