6-Pin to 8-Pin PCIe Adapter Question

I just got a Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X card. I thought the card was going to be 6-pin + 8-pin, but it's two 8-pins. Unfortunately, my PSU only has one 6-pin + one 8-pin.

So, is it ok to use one 6-pin to 8-pin adapter? Will it still handle 150 watts? I know they have the two 6-pin to 8-pin, but I don't have the PSU connections for it. Thanks.

tl;dr it should work fine, just don't overclock it like crazy.
