The adapter that's connected to your video card looks like it has a standard 4 pin molex connector on the other end, That would just connect to any available molex connector coming from the PSU.

The OCZ ModXtreme should have two dedicated PCIe cables. They should have red ends on them that plug directly into the back of the power supply and the video card.

I looked again and found a longer cable for the gpu so now that is fixed.
I just need to plug the fans in and I hope that wil be it.Then I can start her up and finish the build.

Thanks to every one that has helped me so far.
