Replace the PSU! If you can spend $300+ on a GPU you can get for around $50 a better 550watt PSU than the current overrated 850watt unit which might blow up your card because of the lack of quality!

Is it possible for you to purchase an adapter cable? If not, it looks like you'll be needing a new PSU. Merry Xmas.
