That six pin power connector is for hooking up to the card.The two molex attachments on it are for hooking up two molex cables to run the one six pin connector.If you take a closer look,you'll see they are the same.So no you can't hook up another similar six pin cable to that one and run two cards off it.This will overload your powersupply.Best option is to get a SLI ready PSU with at least 30amps on the 12volt rail.Goodluck.

I am not trying to run 2 cards lol
I am trying to run ONE card. Let me explain again:
I have only 1 free Molex 4 pin conncetor, but the card requires 2. There is a "splitter" in the package according to some of the reviews (if not I'm sure I can find one). My question was will that be ok? Cleeve you think so?
Like Cleeve said, if you lack stability, it's the PSU. You already ordered the card, may as well try it out.
ATI actually recommends a 450W PSU with minimum of 30 amp on the 12v rail. Your old true 480 is way shy of that at 22 amp. You could still be fine, depending on how loaded the system is. How many HDD's? Just the two? How about Optical drives? If you have two of those also, I forsee problems. What's using up all those molex connectors?
