There isn't. I'd return a card and get one without a 6-pin connector.

You can probably use a 4 pin MOLEX to PCIe adapter. The 900 Mhz 7750 only draws about 80 watts, this is 5 watts more than the PCIe slot limit so the power draw on the cable will be within that allowable by a MOLEX connector. I would not ever do this for a more powerful card but it will work for the one that you have
