Default SLI 2 GTX 580's Help please

I have purchased another GTX 580 to run two in SLI. The question I have is that the 580GTX has two SLI finger connector plugs per card, if running just two cards do you need just the one SLI cable connector, or are two cables connectors needed?
If you need just the one SLI connector can you plug it into either of the SLI connectors? or is it best to plug into the connector on the video card thats closed to the backplane?

Thanks in advance!
