Need a PSU under $50

I just bought a new video card (GTX 660 ti) and I found out that my 600w PSU doesn't have any PCIe power cables and it only has 2 molex cables. So now i'm looking for a new PSU (preferably 550w-600w) that has 2 PCIe power cables or 4 molex power cables. It would be best if the PSU is under $50. Any recommendations please?

EDIT: I can go a little over $50 to about $75

Will this work for my old PSU? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/270813419190?lpid=44&item_id=270813419190

It'd be better to use it instead of a new PSU

Yes, molex to PCI-E is your best option.

I only have 2 molex cables so I can only convert those to 1 PCIe. Will it work if I also use a SATA to PCIe converter?

Which PSU brand and model do you have?

You're best buying a new PSU. You risk burning up wires with unequal voltage capacities. I recommend Corsair (from the two link you provided) as they're known for quality PSUs.

Honestly, any ~600W PSU for $50 is probably garbage. PSU quality is often overlooked by many people, leading to dead parts. Invest a little more if you can and it'll be worth it. Corsair is my brand of choice. Just don't go for the CX series (low-end parts).
