Question eVGA 7800 GTX and ASUS A8N SLI Deluex

I've installed an eVGA 7800 GTX video card ( 1 card) onto my ASUS A8N-SLI Deluxe MOBO. I,ve connected power to the Video Card through the Supplemental Power Adapter on the card. Am I also required to put power to the EZ plug on the Motherboard?

Good choice of video card :classic:

Yes, the mobo requires the two power cables.

I heard the 7800 is quite good from a pcworld magazine review. Cant remember, I think it got 5 stars out of 6 on overall.

Cant remember who, but some people here, from what I can remember, disagreed with the 7800 completely, said it wasnt enough to go up from the 6800.

going from 6800 to 7800 is a little overdone, lots of money. If you have a 6800 series, wait for a 7900 or 7950gt.

Their will be no 7900 or 7950GT

You may be mixing that up with ATI's x900(Pro, XT) and possibly X950XT
