I bought a:
XFX - AMD Radeon R7 360 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card
When trying to install it, there was no means of supplying power to the unit. Am I just blind or is there actually no 6 pin power connector in this PC?

StratelZ, welcome to the forum.
The good news is, you are not blind!! The bad news is, your PSU doesn't have the additional power cable required for high-end video cards. You will have to upgrade to one that has the appropriate cable. I like Corsair products. I recommend a PSU with at least 500W; 600W would be even better. Also, you should check to assure that your motherboard has UEFI and not a stardard BIOS. The GTX 960 requires UEFI.
