I have just bought a new rig, and have this graphics card which requires 2 six PCI-e connectors.

I bought this power supply to run it from ebuyer

Which i thought would do the job. My problem is the power supply only has 3 molex connectors and no six pin PCI-e connectors (my fault i admit) so i have to use all the molex's for this. But when i turn on the comp the fan on the graphics card doesn't spin and the monitor doesn't turn on.

Any thoughts?

Its rated higher than it likely should be, it isnt one of the better brands. Corsair is a good brand and is sufficient instead of overkill for the card. The fact that that power supply is cheap but rated significantly higher does not indicate quality parts. Remember if a PSU goes it can nuke your whole system.
