Will my PSU work?

I am thinking about upgrading my graphics card from a Radeon HD 6670 to a HD 7850 or something better, the only problem is my 500w PSU doesnt have a 6pin PCI connector, it has 2 4pin spares but they are being used by the case fans.
Can i use a 4pin to 6pin connector or does the fans mean its not possible?
Also, if you can think of a better graphics card then go ahead ;)

More about will work
  1. Get new psu.i suggest get corsair cx 500w psu.
  2. Buying a new PSU is over my budget, any alternatives?
  3. Not really. If it only has 2 4 pin spares and no pcie connector there's no way it's really a 500 W. Manufacturer probably just lied and you'll burn it out and possibly take everything with it
  4. Great. Thanks for the help.
  5. Always welcome

    +1, So True...

    Try upgrade your PSU first before buying the card...
