ThinkStation D20 and graphics card with power cables

Good evening
My current D20 has 2 CPU, 32G RAM and video card "NVIDIA Quadro FX 580".
Is it possible to install "GeForce GTX 560 Ti"?
Both of these cards are ePCI-16, but "GTX 560 Ti" has four power cables (two connections in the cards with two outputs each).
How can I connect this card to the D20 - I do not see free power outputs in the matherboard or in the case?

Re: ThinkStation D20 and graphics card with power cables

the PCIe power cables you need are bundled within the large mass of cables going to the hard drives.   the wires are yellow and black in color.   undo the plastic tie above the drives and you should find them folded up.
