Default Installing a video card that needs power supply

im just wondering if when you install a video card that needs to be connected to the power supply, if it matters which connecter to use with the power supply, or can it be any one that is available?

Whatever molex connector is available...meaning the normal 4pin connector that goes to a HD or CD-Rom and such, can't use the floppy power or anything

can you disconnect a vid. card fan and plug the fan into a fan switch board/speed controller?
