Yes it is very necessary, you might even want a new PSU about 550W with at least 36A on the 12v rails, the 7800GT takes TWO molexes to power it properly, and you plug in a 4 pin connector into the card...this is a power hungry card .

As I've said, me personally I think you should. I've seen others use a 20-pin on it and work fine. The way I see it the manufacturers made it that way to accomodate the new technology that is out and it should be utilized to ensure a stable system. Again this is just my thinking, others may say you don't need it.

So it would need the 24 pin + the 2x2 molex into the mobo (next to cpu) ALONG with the 4 pin into the card??

The DFI has 4 power connectors. They are all required for full stability.
24 pin PS
2 pin square
4 pin like on IDE HD/CD-ROM
4 pin floppy drive type

Yeah, DFI boards need a lot of power. Also, they are very finicky as to what hardware you put on it. Be sure to look at the list of compatability issues on www.dfi-street.com. I'm pretty certain that your current PSU can't cut it for a DFI board, and Corsair RAM has been known to cause problems with DFI boards...

I can see it now. This is what some DFI mobo description will say in newegg in 2020:

"All DFI boards will ship with a rubber sleeved 120V AC power cord to plug directly into the 3 pin connector"
