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=N82E168...
HDD - Western Digital 500gb - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Op Drive - Asus dvd burner - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Mem - 8gigs G.Skill Ripjaw DDR3 1333 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU - Phenom II X4 965 BE - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Vid - XFX Radeon HD 6870 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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=N82E168...

And one of these for the drive and HDD http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

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

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.
