    Option 1) 12v Molex to 12V 6Pin Adapter ~4$
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...=1nb2flhf7thhq


    Option 2)

    Get something like a 6670 (pretty sure they dont use a power cord)
    Maybe even some versions of a 6750.


    here: (strongest card without power connector)
    PowerColor Go! Green HD6750 1GB GDDR5 (Dirt3 Edition)

    Info : http://www.powercolor.com/global/products_features.asp?id=361#Specification


    Buy it here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814131449

    its around 139$ and is the fastest card you can get without a 6pin power connector.
    its also passive, so it makes 0 noise! completly quiet graphics card.
    And comes with a Dirt3 code (free game)


    also this card will be safe to use with your PSU @ 380w.
    Where as if you get a much more powerfull one, you ll need to buy a new PSU as well.

    I've been using a 6850 for bitcoin, with a 6yr old 400W power supply. It didn't make any fuss, but I still felt it was a bit of a stretch.

    Get a new PSU, you can get a CX430 for $25 or so if you jump on the periodic Newegg rebates.

    Seriously, that is a waste of your money. You can get a nice psu AND a better gpu for that much.

    Only $20 after rebate right now.

    Also you can get molex to pcie connectors and most video cards come with them. I'm not sure I'd recommend it on that power supply though. It might as well be rated as a 200W.

    For a new purchase, I wouldn't go less than 500W. Nothing wrong with the CX500, and it comes with two 6+2 pin plugs.

    I've had no problems with the CX430 model, running 2600K + GTX 560, however, it just doesn't give much headroom for the future.
