Connecting Graphics Card to Power

Sorry, I'm a real novice and I jst bought a graphics card. Successfully installed it, but it's running at a reduced level because it needs its own power source.
My problem is the cables:
the cable that attches to the graphics card has 2 seperate attachments with three pins in each. These don't seem to fit anything.

Do I need some sort of adapter? And where does it go?

There's also a little bag with a tiny little cable. One half of it seems to connect to the graphics card, the other end is split into 2 tiny balck connections.

Any idea what that's for?

Many thanks.

the extra power comes from the power supply inside the case, there are connectors on the cables that fit into the plug on the graphics card, what connector depends on which card youve got.
