Hello,
I want to disconnect a floppy drive and use its power source via 4 pin molex connector to power a Nvidia AGP 7600, is this going to work?
Also, the card does have a 4 pin molex slot!

Yes it will be fine. My floppy drive isn't powered by a 4pin molex, and I havn't seen one in a long time, but if it is a 4 pin molex it will be fine. You should an extra 4pin molex, and the 7600 on newegg comes with a spliter anyway.

A floppy drive should use a mini four pin connector. Unless the card has one two it isn't going to work.

My floppy drive power cable has a splice w/open 4 pin connector, so itlooks like it will plug right in, just wanted to know if it would leave me with ashes where the card was,,lol

No, if your floppy has a normal molex plug it will be fine. No ashes or anything like that. Assuming your "splice" is a good one that is. If you have a short somewhere....
