Adding a 2T Drive to a 590=p0050, how do I get power to it? No Extra connetion?

Trying to add a 2T Internal Hard Drive to unit. There is an extra circuit connector but not an extra power connector. How do I get power to 2T Drive? Can I add an extra drive to this PC? It's a Western Digital WD20EARX

Simple and cheap solution is using a power splitter cable: 1 female to 2 male.

The Y connector was a good idea. But on further looking at the motherboard I found an extra power port on the motherboard, I had the connector cable for the drive. I plugged it in and it is working fine now.
