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?
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.
