2xMOLEX to 6pin adapters, they should come with the card.

(insert image of cheap pcie thinger)

some people wouldnt trust this method depending on your cards power draw versus your psu's rail setup.

this will work but do it at your own risk, i have seen these connectors (edit: molex connectors) melt together with the use of some bigger cards.

What are you purchasing? GTX 460? I'd be wary with that PSU.
