Hi to users of the TBS 6903 in a Linux machine,=================================================================================================
I have a Windows system but really don't think that the use or otherwise of a PCI card power cable has any relevance to the operating system.
What will matter is the computer spec., how many other PCI cards are using the system and the size of you computer power supply.
I have a rather old computer but is does have a 500 watt power supply so it was a no-brainer to connect the power cable provided with the TBS 6903 particularly as I have a reasonable good graphics card that uses power from the PCI system (ie no direct power connection) and other PCI devices.
If you have a spare power connection I would use it.
