fitting graphics card question

  sunny staines 10:58 01 Aug 2007

the power connector that goes into the edge of the graphics card [gigabyte nvidia 7600gs] does it matter which way round the the power connector fits.

or should the yellow leads in the power connector be towards the top of the card with the red leads towards the motherboard or the other way round. instructions do not cover this point.

do not want to fry the card if i get it wrong, grateful for any advice please.

If it's a molex connector it should only go in one way. The plug and socket are shaped for this.
