Default Need help plugging in GPU!!

hey guys, i just inserted my new graphics card (gtx 460) and that was easy enough but im not entirely sure what to plug into what. Heres a photo with annotations for the plugs and the white lines show where the plugs go. It would be great if someone could show me how to plug this thing together. Thanks!

ok cheers, what confuses me is that both E and D come from the optical drive and C comes from the hard drive. There isnt any plug directly from the power supply. Does this matter?
