    clarification for "Auxiliary PCI Express graphics power connector (1 x 4 pin)"

      Dear sir,

      I have DX58SO intel MB and i recently connect power to "Auxiliary PCI Express graphics power connector (1 x 4 pin)".I am using EVGA nVIDIA GeForce GT 240 video card.

      Now iam going to install "EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked 1024MB EE"  video card on my mother board.But that video card requires additional power using  6-pin PCI-E power connector(directly connect to video card).

      So my question is,Do i need connect power to "Auxiliary PCI Express graphics power connector (1 x 4 pin)" ,even when auxiliary power is connected(through 6-pin PCI-E power connector)  directly to the video card?
