Thanks!

It's in respect to the agp2.0 power consumption, the external floppy connector is there just ini case something wrong happens.

So does that mean that the power consumption is only 30W then, or is it more? From the FAQ at ATI it says:

Q2: Does the RADEON™ 9700 PRO graphics card require an additional power connection and why?

A2: Yes. RADEON™ 9700 PRO has so many advanced features that it requires an additional power connection to attain maximum performance from the graphics card. In addition to installing a RADEON™ 9700 PRO graphics card you are also required to plug a power cable into the graphics card and to the power supply. Connect the 4-pin cable of the Power Extension to the connector provided at the corner of the RADEON™ 9700 PRO graphics card.

It doesn't necessarily say that it requires more power but that's what it sounds like.
