My PSU: modxstream pro 600w -

my graphics card Sapphire R7 265 - (specs link) click here, i recently bought a sapphire r7 265, and i'm totally stuck with choosing the right cable Q__Q. I'm very afraid of frying my graphics card because recently i broke my last card while trying to clean it with my vacuum cleaner ..

so.. cables i own:

from graphics card:

6 pin into 4 pin molex (so no direct way to socket into PSU)

cables i own:

6 pin to 6 pin pci express cable (black color) 8 pin to 6 pin pci express cable (red color) 8 pin to 6 pin + 2 pin pci express cable (red color) long 6 pin cable with like 3 sockets thingy's for 4 pin molex thingy's

EPS12v (permanent attached to PSU) ATX12v (permanent attached to PSU)

the sapphire website says: 1X75 Watt 6-pin PCI Express power connector is required, isn't 8 pin to 6 pin 150w? my 6 pin into 6 pin cable is black and the pci express slots are red 8 pins. Should i use that weird molex thingy on another molex thingy? but that's a black 6 pin aswell.

backside of my PSU is weird, it only has 8 pin pci express slots (x2) which are red colored. and a few black colored 6 pin slots. So which cable on which slot?
