The card has an auxiliary power supply i/p, which should be connected, 
if you are using a larger load.
With a higher load and if you draw power from the PCI bus, it could be 
bad, as there are some
limitations to the current drawn from a PCI slot. Also, you can set the 
SEC chip for a different current
