Hi so ive just order all the parts for my build and i went quite cheap on the psu ; however it had 9.5 ratings. it didn't come with a 6 pin pci cable , but it has 3 molex's (however one of the molex's will be taken up as it will be powering 3 fans through a bit fenix molex to 3 x 3 pin fan connecters) so would it be safe to use a 2 x molex to pci adapter ; as i really don't want to blow a £95 card up!

Here's my new specs and a link to the psu:

$15 for a "500w" PSU is far too good to be true. The minimum I'd spend on a PSU is 40 USB/pounds/euros.
