Default 2 power inlets on video card ?

Hi Guys

When I installed my X850pro (AGP) I noticed it has 2 power plug inlets on it, 1 big 4 pin and 1 small 4 pin. The directions say nothing about the small 4 pin, so I pluged in the bigger 4 pin connector like the dirrections said and everything has been fine But now I am am wondering if I should have plugged them both in

In the uper right hand corner are the 2 power inlets, The purple is the 1 I plugged in and the yellow is the small 1 I didn't plug in.

It shouldnt make a difference if you plug both in. I reckon ATi just put both in for convenience. After you have all your other devices plugged in, you might have a square shaped 4 pin connector left over or a regular molex left over.
