Replacement cables for Corsair VS new PSU- Buying withing next two days.

Any help or advice is appreciated.

Building a new system, was looking to use my hx520 as a temp until I got a second 760 to SLI. Sadly appear to have lost the (proprietary!) cables in my last move and therefore do not have enough PCI-E to get my 6 and 8 GPU hooked up, nor anywhere to plug in the molex adaptors that came with the Gigabyte 760, which takes both a 6 and 8 pin PCI-E.

Is there a cheap way to get my 520 hooked up to my 760, or any recommendations for a new PSU? Looking to buy within the next day or two. Not planning to OC soon, and it'd be a mild one for performance and life extension for the build, not for shytes and giggles.

Current (PSUless) system. Second card would be same as the first.

Current 520w PSU.

Only removable cables I have for it are for my sata power ports. Has one 6+2 PCI-E, also an unused 4 pin 12volt.

New PSU, I look at something like this

and am unsure if I'd just end up in the same boat as before once I got a second card. 2 6pin PCI-E only? Is that right? >:|

^ Forgive errors and dumb questions, first build.

Thanks for answer, I ordered a TX750 a few days ago(70$). Sadly, the next day a modular Seasonic 850 went on sale for the same price, but whatcha gonna do. Shell shockers. :P
