On every Video card I own there is this connector near the top of the board where it looks like you could hook in an IDE cable, but it is missing three of the pins. Does anyone know what this is used for? I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could solve this.

It's commonly referred to as a feature connector, what it is for is determined by the manufacturer, most are used for a VIVO daughter card or tuner/video capture device. Others may let you install a memory extension board on the card. Hope this clears things up a bit.
