Windows 7: How to correctly connect the GPU via PSU?

How to correctly connect the GPU via PSU?

My new GTX 770 crashes when I'm starting a game. I think that the GTX 770 isn't receiving enough power as it should.

I got a new CX750M, there are two PCI-E slots in the power supply, I used only one slot (6+2pin & 6+2pin) to connect the GPU. Is this correct?

My GTX 770 came with a Dual 6-Pin PCI Express to 8-Pin PCI Express Power Adapter. Do I have to use this power cable to connect to the second slot in the power supply? I have tried this already but the GTX 770 crashes when starting a game.

Im thinking the GTX 770 isn't getting enough power? The CX750M has 62amps on the rail

Power must be supplied to both connectors on the GTX 770. As long as you connect the 6+2pin & 6+2pin connectors from the CM750M to the GTX 770 you should be good.

Do you have the latest drivers installed?
