so I got my pc together and now I got to the part of plugging the PCIe power connectors to the 6 pin connector on the top of the graphics card, well there is two power connectors, one being a 6 pin, and the other being a 6+2 pin, which one do I plug it into? just the 1 6 pin or just the 1 8 pin or both?

now that you said that, I have another question, what would happen if the computer was powered down but not unplugged and the power supply switch was set to off but plugged in and I unplugged the pcie power connector from the gpu?
 


I've done that many times when changing and swapping cards about and never had any problems. Just make sure everything is plugged back in correctly before powering up again.
