I Have a new GeForce 8600 GTS. It comes with 4 Pin Molex to 6 Pin PCI Express Video Card Power Adapter.

Do I need to plug a 4pin Power cable into both connectors or will one do?

My guess is, and what i would do if i was doubting what to do, is that i would connect both power cable. Since there is two cables, then they are probably both meant to be used.

my main reason for asking is that if I use both cables then I dont have enough for my second HD and I only have a 350w power suply.
