Sorry but what does "fold" mean in terms of a graphic card?
The ATI cards can do folding for proteins.

But it is not important if you are a gamer

Folding (Folding @ Home), is a project by Stanford University. It's a program that you run, on your computer, and it folds proteins. Protein folding, helps scientists, understand illnesses better, which could lead to finding a cure, to various diseases, such as cancer. They do this because, it's better to use a million of the PCs at home, currently registered for this project, then spending billions of dollars, to build a supercomputer.

One thing i forget... There is a sticker on the cards case that says that the power cord from the PSU should be connected from the PSU and then split to two cords one connecting to the card and the other to the hard drive.. Must this be done? Cant i just connect any power cord to the card? Must it be the one that is also on the hard drive?

Thanks

If your PSU, has a PCI-e connector, just connect that, to the X1950XTX.

I don't quite get what you're saying.

"that is on the 1 end the 4 hole".....I can't understand that. But the PCI-e connector is a 6-pin power connector, like this:
