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?
