Quick installation question...

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This might be a really stupid question.

I am right now building a new PC. I just put my video card in, which is an EVGA e-GeForce 9800 GTX SSC edition.

On the video card, it has 2 power connectors. Do I need to connect power cables to both power connectors, or just one? I looked at the video card documentation, but it was really bad and really generic. Again, this is probably a stupid question.


This is my first build and I want to make sure I get it right...

Yes, you do connect both power connectors. If you don't, the little green (I think) fiber optic light won't show up.
