Default Video Card power req.

Quick question...On a Radeon 9700, it's supposed to have it's own hookup to the systems psu, but I dont have the power cable that came with the card. Can I buy another one of these somewhere? or is it completely necessary? Didnt know if I could just hook it up directly through one of the psu's existing floppy connectors. (Might sound like a dumb question but last card I had was an old 32mb card, so this is all new to me). Thanks.

Radeon 9700 i believe use the same connector as the one connect to your harddrive,. so you dont need buy an extra unless you dont have the 12v connectors

Well, I looked at the card and i'm sure that it's not the same power connection that the harddrive takes, but rather the power connection that you use in the back of your floppy drive..the small 4 pin connector.
