Connect power supply to new video card?

I recently bought an nVidia 7600gt video card and I can't figure out if I am supposed to hook it up to the power supply or not. I have a friend that has the 6800xt and it does hook up to the PS. But nowhere in the manual does it say that this card should hook up to the PS.

Here is the card:

Look at it. Does it have a big connector on it for connection to the power supply? If not, it doesn't need to be connected to the power supply.

I don't see a connection on it for a power supply. But I thought that most newer video cards require to be hooked up to a power supply. I guess mine doesn't though. Thanks.
