Hi there,

As long as every item is getting power, then you don't have to worry about it. Every hard drive will need to have a power connector, and the graphics card will need to be connected (if it has the power connection - some lower end models don't need it).

It won't matter if they're on the same cord or separate, as long as they're connected.

I hope this is helpful - if not, let me know, cause it's a little confusing... :)

Cheers

Troy
