I was finishing my build and forgot to hook up the second 7800gtx power cable to the card. I booted up into windows and it gave me a message that it was switching to low power mode. I realized my mistake and shut down the machine hooked the power back up and rebooted. It booted fine and everything seems to work. Will this cause damage to the card if you forget to hook up the power cable to one of the cards and boot up?

thanks

haha.. ya :cool: I was on the phone with some chick once who just kept going on and on about nothing and I litterally put the phone on my desk (without telling her)... went to the restroom ... then to get some food out of the kitchen ... went outside for a sec.. then came back to the phone and she was still talking!!!!! :eek: Needless to say I rarely picked up the phone if it was her calling after that .. lol.
