from what you've stated, I'd say a definate maybe
as an answer ..
That it works is good thing.
I say maybe 'cause I think:
usually the harddrives are not directed connected by IDE cable to the vid card.
a cd-rw, a dvd-rom or other "removeable storage" devices do.
I'm gonna say, go to the website that makes the vid card you installed and try to view FAQ or a manualfor installation to get some specific information.
Or, post more info about what exactly your PC mobo is.
Same advice about that mobo, go to the manufacturer's site and nose around for specific info about the fan connections, power unit plug ins, etc.
which OS needs to be understood at this end of the conversation, too.
