My video card, the eVGA nVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra, has a simple little system requirement that I don't understand. It says: Two hard disk drive power dongles off of separate power supply cable bundles (smaller floppy disk drive connector is not sufficient). That makes no sense to me, could someone please explain it?

If you open your case, you will see bundles of power cables coming from the power supply that you plug in hard drives, cd rom drives, etc into. Each cable usually has multiple connectors.

They want you to take two seperate cables and plug one connector from each into the video card. Thats how i am interpreting it.
