i have a pci-express graphics card that requires a 6-pin pci-express connector. however, my power supply doesnt have this connectr. so i acquired a molex to pci-express thingamabob. it has 2 molex plugs. do have to plug both in? if i use an additional thingy that makes one molex connecotr into 2, and then i hook those 2 it just made instead of one into the pci-express adapter will i be defeating the purpose of the pci-express adapter having 2 molex plugs. does it do that because it needs double the power or what?

It is recommended that you plug both in preferably from two separate lines from your power supply.
