Supplying Power for EVGA GEFORCE GTX 970

Supplying Power for EVGA GEFORCE GTX 970
This is a Tier 5 build, using all the components recommended in the build your own computer article.

I've got the card, and I see there for power there are two 8-pin PCI-E slots. My PSU has one PCI-E power cord with an 8-pin and a 2-pin unit. Can I just use the one 8-pin power cord in either slot, or do I need an additional 8-pin cord so that both slots are filled? The user guide is vague on this, though it is possible that I'm missing the obvious.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

You need to use both PCI-E connectors on the graphics card.

Thanks for the reply. I have the Antec Basiq 550 Plus. Being modular, it comes with an extra PCI-E cord.
