There are tons of molex to pci-e adapters. They take 2 hdd power connectors and turn them into 1 pci-e power connecter.

Be careful when using adapters like that because it is easy to overload an old PSU. Check the rating on the PSU to make sure it can take the extra draw of the new video card.

Please post the brand and model number of the power supply unit.

The distribution of the connectors on the +12V rails is also important.

Note that the label states that the combined wattages are peak wattages. Peak wattages are useless and are used to deceive unsuspecting customers.

Its continuous power rating would be somewhere between 350 to 400 Watts.

What graphics card model are you trying to power?

You shouldn't have a problem. That graphics card model has a relatively low power consumption (i.e. less than 100 Watts when running Furmark and 74 Watts during gaming).
