I have a auxiliary power for graphics on my motherboard(evga 680 sli)and on my gpu I have two power connectors(evga gtx 260). My question is.. Should I have power running to the mainboard AND the gpu or just one or the other?

Is the auxiliary a 4-pin or 8-pin connector located near the CPU? Then yes. The GPU will definitely need the 2 6-pin connectors to run. Basically, yes.

It's a 4 pin. I kind of figured all of them needed power but just wanted to be sure.Thanks!

Make sure everything is in firmly too, especially if you have a modular PSU.
