Default Connecting two 6800 Ultras to power supply?

I'm using an antec 550 true control power supply and I seem to have run out of cables. Can I take the ones running off of the two optical drives and what not.. and add a Y connector to power each drive? Or does each power supply need two separate lines, therefore 4 dedicated lines?

No, you can get a Y splitter. You just have to make sure you dont use up all the output from your PSU. Having to 6800 Ultras is prolly a pretty big power drain. Just make sure you dont run out of power.
