Hi all sorry for the noob question but i have brand new Corsair RM850 and a used EVGA 1080ti FTW3 Gaming 11GB.
Where it should start the PCIe cable in the PSU? can you draw a circle or something to the correct connector on the PSU? and should i use one cable to connect both the 6+2 to the GPU?
 
Thanks a lot!

For the connections required for the video card you can use any two of the five I have shown you here:

For best results, it's best to use two separate PCIe/VGA cables to the card.
 
Since an EVGA 1080ti FTW3 has two 8-pin sockets on it, you should us two separate 8-pin (or 6+2-pin) cables from the PSU..Like what's shown here from Seasonic.

The reason to use two different cables is because of having less power draw on the individual cable and should be able to be more stable then if it is pumping more voltage over a single cable. Corsair though is a great PSU so you should  have a solid power supply for the system.
