Default Do i need the 12v atx plug for my system?

Hey guys,

I am just wondering if i should attach the 12v rail to my mobo? I have the normal ATX power connector attached but im not sure how much my system will drain.

My system specs:

AMD 64 3400+ (Newcastle core)
1Gb Kingston PC3200 400mhz RAM (2 x 512)
XFX Geforce 6800 GT 256mb
Asus K8v SE Deluxe Mobo
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy ZS
LG DVD drive
LG CD-RW drive
Sony Floppy
120Gb seagate baracuda HD 7200rpm

Advice apreciated.

Chris

Dont remember the proper volts but make sure that lader one that feeds you Mobo is attached and the smaller one that feeds your CPU is atached as well.

I ran my comp without the cpu for a while not knowing back in the day when i was a complete moron. Boy did my system run unstabily.
