Looking inside my XPS 8900 Desktop I find that I have 2 black 6 pin female molex type connectors on the end of cables coming from the Power Supply.  Anybody know what these are for please ??

Thanks

Some video cards require 6-pin connectors - they're there for supporting such cards.

Yes they are six pin PCIe power connectors, for higher end graphics cards..

Many thanks for the answer, I only have the low end entry level GPU that doesn't use these.
