  1. Most 8 pin pci-e have a set of 2 pins the break away from the rest(6+2).

    If it has that, then its all good, other then that, yea you would need adapter(they do make a 8 pin to 6 pin and 8 pin to 2 x 6 pin, but they are not always that easy to fine.).

    You can also get the 4 pin molex to 6-pin.
  2. it will run if you do not add to many thing on the system a 500 watts is minimum requirements for this card see this http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/amd-radeon-hd-6000/hd-6870/pages/amd-radeon-hd-6870-overview.aspx#3
