Help! 5770 / 5870 Power cable?

I need a Mini pci-e 6pin to 6pin power cable for 5870 GPU in my Macpro.
Found it on ebay but need to wait 2 weeks for delivery. Looked are over toronto and
can't find one (carbon was useless). It's not the end of the world but would like to get
my workstation up and running asap. Anyone know where I can get one in the GTA?

Did you get the video card new? If so, the required cable would be in the box. I'm guessing you got the Mac Pro or the video card second hand?

it may be a flashed PC card in which case it won't have the mac version of the power cable.

Not sure where you can get just the cable in the Toronto area. I've only seen them online. Might be worth giving a call to mac doc or midtown digital to see if they have in stock.

I'm in the same boat.... Bought a used 6870 for $50 and am stuck with it sitting on my desk because I bought from a non-Mac user .
I found 2 aces in the GTA that have some but they want $25 a piece for them.
Have been searching everywhere for a pair but with no luck.
Anyone got any leads?
