I recently am doing a new build and I am having a problem with the video card.

I am using the EVGA 03-P4-2888-KR 780 Ti Classified Graphics card, on a Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4 Motherboard with an Intel Xeon E5 2687W CPU, 32GB of Avexir Core Series RAM and The Cougar 1000w CMX Semi-Modular Power Supply.

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817553004

So here is my problem... I am recieving the error that designates a graphics problem from the motherboard speaker on boot up. I am using 2 of the 6-pin connectors from the non-modular section of the PSU (through one of the converters supplied by EVGA) to power one of the 8-Pin Power slots on the GPU. Then for the other 8 Pin I have another 2x 6-Pin power cords from the modular side of the PSU powering the other 8-Pin Power on the GPU (Using another one of the 2x 6-Pin to 1x 8-Pin adapters). However when it boots I still get the same error. I think each of the modular connectors are 24A (The graphics card recommends 42A), however I am not sure if the non-modular 6-Pin power cables are also at 24A. (Honestly I have no idea how to read the chart on the back of the PSU). I think I will need to get 2 more cables elsewhere to solve my problem, but I thought to run it by you guys first.

Thanks!
