  1. Before you use the adapter, ensure your 12v rail(s) will provide enough amperage for the graphics card - there may be a reason it only has one PCI cable. The wiring is correct on that adapter, only two wires are needed for 12v, which are then split into 6 wires for your GPU by the adapter.

    Although you are not really set up for it, having to use an adapter, your PSU is quite capable of powering the graphics card.
