Looking for Graphics card power cable for Mac Pro

Hello,
I just bought a Radeon HD 5770 for my Mac Pro 3,1 from eBay. I got the card, it's a Mac card not a flashed PC card. It did not come with the power cable. OWC sells one:

Apple 922-7128 Video Card Power Cable for Mac Pro -... in stock at OWC

But I would prefer to buy it locally in the GTA. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

That looks like a pretty generic cable. Does the mac pro have a specific connection that most PC's do not have? I would just check at a computer store like canada computers.

the end that connects to the apple logic board is what makes it different. you won't be able to find it at your local computer store.

i bought a bunch of these 6 pin-to-6pinmac cables. you can have one if you bring me a coffee. send me a message if you're available daytime this weekend.

i'm way over just east of the beaches - i-rui is closer. you'll save a couple of hours going to him.

Sorry, all. I was worried about needing this cable before I actually opened the computer. Once I opened it, I saw that the old graphics card had one. I just swapped the cards and plugged the cable into the new card.

Hey folks...
I'm in Toronto and am searching for a pair of these cables...
Anyone have a pair they'd be willing to part with?
Would be much appreciated.
