I noticed that it looks like my power supply has two plugs for each cable. Is this some sort of master/slave relationship, like in IDE and other ribbon cables? If so, does it matter what I plug in where? I really don't understand the workings of master/slave relationships. I am looking at a Dell Dimension 4300 power supply, but I am about to build a new system from scratch, so I want to know what I'm doing before I buy my own power supply. (As a side note, it would be nice if anyone could recommend a good, high performance, quiet power supply, around 400 watts). Thanks for any help!
