Default I didn't think they would even run without that power cable.

Why didn't you just get a power splitter? They're like $2.

Default Still needs pwr form the molex connector

Otherwise the card will not run at its full speed due to lack of pwr.

Default I ran that card (512meg version) hard today wihout the extra cable and it did fine.

The thing that seemed to really help was installing a utility from AMD for dual core processors...that speed up the graphics by "a lot"...whatever a lot is.

Follow the link and get the first one...AMD Dual Core Optimizer if you feel like it.<ul><li><a href="http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/TechnicalResources/0,,30_182_871_13118,00.html">AMD Dual Core Optimizer</a></li></ul>
