Building a molex connector out of a sata power connection
Hi guys, I just bought a new graphic card (radeon 6850). It comes with one 4 pin molex connector to 6 pin pci-e. My problem is that my power supply does not have a molex connection, only sata power connection. My idea was to build an adapter by cutting the last sata connection head from the string and connect it to a molex head. So I figure out that in need to connect red wire to red wire and yellow to yellow, but what about the black cables? Does it matter which on goes where?

yes the black is the ground and most important actually.
if you're feeling really crazy just cut off the sata and molex connectors and hard wire the yellow to yellow and blacks to blacks together; all the PCI-E connector uses is the 12volt and the ground.
So I dont need the red at all? And how can I know which black goes to which black?
