The ATI card requires a power connector to power the card/hsf, right?

In the manual, it says to direct the HDD 12v to the card, then the spliter to the HDD.

Is there a particular reason it has to be the HDD 12v?

Right now, I just took off the adapter from the card, and have a small connector from the PSU directly connected to the ATI card.

I'm just too nervous that I might mess up my expensive card.:(


I have the power conector from my floppy drive going hooked right up to my 9700.
