I bought a radeon HD 7870(power color) it needs two 6 pin power wire..
My power(700w) have just one..and I bought a 4pin to 6 pin convertor to support this..
But my convertor has 5 pin..!:-o
It has six hole for wires but two of them (the black wires) goes ein to one pin..!
I mean that one of its pin is nothing and no wire conect there..
Just look at this pic..

I would look at the front of the cable. I would say you are fine sir. Your card comes with a molex to pci-express power connector. I would say you are golden man. The wires going in are just fine. Plug them in and power it up :)

Remember those converters are only meant to be temporary. I've seen quite a few stories about them blowing up because not enough power is supplied sometimes.

Hmm, so you are saying that the adapter the 2 molex male to pci-express connection is not meant for permanent use? Do you have something to back this up with? I mean I would not want to use a power supply that didn't have the connections to start firstly but I wouldn't think it would blow up hmm...
