This question was asked and answered on Newegg's page (just have to click Q&A). The answer it that it doesn't need a power cable.

FWIW I'm using a different RX560 (needed low profile) card from another manufacturer, and it works great with a 4K TV (4:4:4 at 60 hz) plus a second WUXGA screen turned vertically.

Yes video cards that need more power than can be fed through the motherboard (I think 75 watts in the limit) have a connector for a power cable from the power supply to get more power. There is a 6 pin variety that provides up to 75 watts more and an 8 pin that provides up to 150 watts more.

Cards that stay under the 75 watt limit and therefore don't need a "power cable" are good for upgrading "off-the-shelf" desktop computers which typically don't have a video card power cable.

AMD and nVidia have cards right at the limit to "max out" an off-the-shelf PC for gaming. Right now they're the RX460 or RX560 fr AMD, and GTX1050 or GTX1050Ti for nVidia.

Note that some RX460 and RX560 cards do have the connector and need a power cable, but I think this one doesn't.

It's the same for nVidia with some GTX950, GTX1050, and GTX1050Ti cards needing a power cable and some don't.

I would. 4gb on a lower end card is wasted.

Call them. I've never had an issue getting my rebates.

How does having two video cards work? Newbie here. I have a gtx 680 or I got off Craigslist for $40 that's been doing just fine. If I got something like this and plopped it on my msi 900 with the 680 would I get better performance?

No. You need two identical video cards that are CrossFire or SLI capable. Your motherboard must also support CF/SLI.
