So I just got a new graphics card, a HD 4850 X2. Now, I knew that it need a 6 pin and an 8 pin connector, and looking at my PSU specs, I saw that it had a 6 pin and 2 4 pins. I figured I could work with that. Upon obtaining the card, however, I realized much to my dismay that my motherboard is actually using one of those 4-pin connectors. Without buying a new PSU, what is my best course of action here?

GPU: Radeon HD 4850 X2 2GB
Motherboard: M2N-SLI Deluxe
PSU: OCZGXS700

Thanks!

Update: And looking at the 4pins, you can't even plug them into the 8pin, as the layout is different. Not meant for PCI power then.

yes, molex adapters will do the job fine providing your PSU has the available amperage to power the cards. being a 700w PSU i imagine it will.
