asus rog tuf 3070 daisy chained pcie cables

I completed a my first pc build a while ago and came across a video advising not to use the daisy chained in the 2nd slot of the gpu and to use a seperate cable instead. My PSU comes only with PCIE cables that have additional cable daisy chained. My question is does it matter if i use 2 seperate PCIE cables with daisy chained cable hanging for best practice or do i need to buy a separate single PCIE cable?


Ive attached a screenshot of what the ports of my GPU look like if that helps

Doesn't matter, you don't need cables that are single connectors. Only difference would be that it'll look more tidy without extra connectors hanging off.

A quality power supply will not have issues with a daisy chained cable.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B
