You will need a molex to 6 pin PCIe adapter.

most GTX 460 come with two adapters, just about every single one comes with one

since you have a 6-pin already, you only need one

As I haven't actually been shopping for one I have not looked at the boxed contents and didn't wish to assume that they would be provided. :whistle:
