    Your new video card needs extra power from your power source to run. It probably takes the type of plug a floppy drive would take or it could use a power plug an older IDE drive would take. When you're looking at the fan on the card the plug will be on the upper right hand side.

    If by inside the CPU you actually mean inside the computer case then yes. ;)
