Default Help with Graphics card please

My son just got a PC with a GTX 260 (not installed)
Motherbiard is an Asrock G31-M 2.0

PC Specs are:
4gb Memory
500GB HDD
Q8200 CPU
500w PSU

Now the problem is, that the GTX Card has 2 PCI-E slots on it, but I have one from the PSU?
Do i just connect the one?..

Thanks in advance if you can help please

----------------

Tried to post this topic in Overclockers but didnt go through?


Basically my son was given this for nothing and just wants to play flight games on it but wants to get the most out of it but not wanting to spend anything......
Specs of the computer are :

GRAPHICS : GTX 260 XFX
ASROCK G31M : LINK
INTEL Q8200 CPU
500GB HARD DRIVE
4GB MEMORY
500W PSU

Now the question is how do I overclock this machine to get full potential from it as far as I know its just a stock cpu fan on it if that matters.

Havent tried any games on it just yet to see how they work
Any help would be appreciated...
Oh, I seen this on youtube but not sure (gives rough Idea): LINK
