Default Those power cables...

Are those power cables that a connect a radeon card to a harddrive neccesary? I thought the radeon card got all its power from the agp slot.

Reason why I'm asking is I'm looking through ebay and all of sudden there this power connection to the HD.

uhm.. a Y connector? there's not a special power connection that runs from the hard drive to the video card, they're probably just using a Y connector to split the power, which is typical
