I know how to put on an adapter but that is not the problem. To better explain I drew a picture.



Its is only a rough diagram but hopefully you will understand what I am trying say. The best way to power the graphics card would be like you said to just put an adapter on one of the molex plugs. But the guy who assembled this computer didn't do that. He made it so the molex plug doesn't get used up completely by the adapter. I am trying to learn how to do that myself.

That won't work. You need to run it in parallel, not series.

The included adapter usually requires two 4-pin plugs to power a 6-pin PCIe. However, you can mod it to use just one 4-pin Molex.

I must have interpreted it wrong. Based on what I drew and what you said I think that means that both of those molex plugs are powering the pci plug.
