If you don't use it much, you could use the connector from the floppy drive.

Last time I had to do it that way was to install an AGP card. Times (and hardware) change.

I read up that most cards need a 6-pin connector from the psu.

Does your card have the 6-pin connection at the back of the card .. if so ... here is a Molex to 6 Pin PCI-Express convertor cable.

I know that you can buy them cheaper on ebay.

Hope this helps.
