6-pin to 8-pin connectors adapters do not exist. You'll need an adapter that uses 2 (TWO) molexes to 8-pin PCI-E.
Now, these cables are rare, and the only real solution is a new PSU...
Looking into cables though.
Finally, I really hope yiou didn't destroy that brand new video card with that cable... seems like you very well might have done so though
Oh man, I was really hoping no one was gonna say that.
Where can I find this magical molex adapter? I really can't get a new PSU right now, it's just not even close to being in my budget...
Oh, and the card still seems to power-up fine, so I don't think I've destroyed it. I could be wrong though.
