Your video card should come with one included but if it does not you can get this adapter (assuming I'm thinking of the correct part you are looking for lol).

Just checked out the card at the BFG website and it says this under "Included in the box":

Dual 4-pin to single 6-pin power cable.

thanks thats great.
so I don't have to connect the card to the power supply? is the adapter just for an SLI setup?

According to BFG, you should hook up the power to the card. The manual that comes with the card explains how to do that properly. You can also download the manual from thier website.
