I am going to buy an Asus Strix gtx 970 and it has an 8pin connector and i was wondering if i can use two 4pin connectors as an 8pin connetor. I have a 4pin and a 4+2pin connector in my psu. My psu is a no name 500w.

4 and 4+2? That must be built for a proprietary board. Those are not ATX standard connectors.
Given that, and the fact it's a no-name unit.... I'd have to say no. You should be looking at a new, quality PSU and, if the board uses proprietary connections, you'll need adapters to the board too.

Then you shouldn't be looking at a 970.
Maybe consider a PCIe powered card, like a 1050TI or similar. I wouldn't be comfortable adapting off of a 'no-name' PSU with proprietary connections.
Nevermind im just an idiot i just double checked and it has an 6+2 and a 6pin connector.

Looks like the PS-7501-5 is the same PSU that shipped with the Acer Predator G3-710 (i5-7400 and a GTX 1070), so it should be fine actually.

IIRC, the TDp for a 1070 is slightly higher than a 970.
Next is fitting it in when i actually get it in 6 or 7 days.
