Final build overview. One last question.

Hate to make another post for the same build but I'm buying tonight and my other thread was pretty dead, this will be short though!

Part one - Just want to post my final budget build for review, so this is what I got.
Mobo - Asus m5a78l-m lx plus - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131795
HDD - Western Digital 500gb - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136769
Op Drive - Asus dvd burner - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204
Mem - 8gigs G.Skill Ripjaw DDR3 1333 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231426
CPU - Phenom II X4 965 BE - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727
Vid - XFX Radeon HD 6870 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150561

My final question on this build is about my PSU and the vid cards. I found a damn good deal on the XFX 6870 that I want to nab, there's only one problem. I'm using a 500w 80+ rocketfish PSU that i bought 1-2 years back when I was attempting to salvage an older computer, since then it's had little use in a 2nd dying computer and has been sitting in a closet for some time. Since I bought it i have moved and if it came with SATAs and PCIs well they're most likely long gone. So as it is i have this PSU with 20+4 pin mobo, 2 4Pin cpu, and 7 molex. So that said, would it be a safe/worthwhile fix to use these until I upgrade my PSU?

2 of these which I guess would take 4 molex http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812887001

And one of these for the drive and HDD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812119010

So If that fix works, the XFX which, unlike Sapphire, doesnt come with adapters, should be affordable for me. Thx!

  1. Oh and i should note that my PSU has the pcie slots i just cant seem to find replacement cables. It has an 8 pin outlet on the PSU. The manual says "8 pin to 8 pin (6+2). If you can help me find proper replacement cables that would work in place of the adapters.
