BFG tech states the GTX 280 "requires" 3, 6-Pin PCIs. I personally have no doubts just using one adapter probably isn't an issue, and wouldn't have even asked the question if I had 3.

I'm just wondering why this is? I have 4, 12+V rails with 52A total. I can use 2 rails on one jack, and 2 rails on the other. Where's the problem if there is one?
