I'm currently building my first computer and wish to double check somethings regarding the power supply wiring. I have a gtx 970 and know that it requires a 6 pin and 8 pin connection. My power supply is an Evga g2, with VGA cables which have 8 pins on one end and 6+2 at the other. The eight pin side is what I connect into the psu and the 6+2 is what I use for the graphics card right? For the 6 pin connection on the graphics card I just let the 2 pins dangle while connecting the 8 pin side of the cable into the psu?

Ok thank you, is the general rule that the side of the cable in which all the pins are attached together for the psu while the side with a split of some kind is for the component, for instance a CPU cable with 8 pins on one sixe is for the psu and the side with 4+4 is for the header on the motherboard?
