    Question RTX 3070

    I have recently bought an Aorus 3070 Master. My psu has 2 x 6+2 pcie pins. The card has 2 8 pin slots. I'm meant to connect both cables right? I connected only one as I wasn't sure and the card boots once it gets to windows. This was on a 600w psu so I just bought a 750w one.
