Quick Build Question
 
512mb GT 8800 has 2x PCIx power connection slots. Do I use them both or is only one required? It's not in the book.......:rtfm:......small pam only had 6 pictures on it and did not cover power connections. Thanks!

That card can use just 1; But if you want to overclock using the jumpers you can hook up both for extra power.

This is the Galaxy 8800GT right?

Apparently the second Power plug provides more stable power and allows for better overclocks.
