yes i have had a look at them, but there is no mention of the four wires and the plastic connector on the end of them, where does this plug into.

That'll be because your card needs more power than older cards. Is the connector similar looking (but a female rather than a male), to the ones which come out of the Power Supply, and feed the disk drives?

If it is - plug it into a spare line from the PSU.
