[SOLVED] Using a PCIe 6+2 pin to duel PCIe 6 pin

Hey Guys, I'm doing a budge build for my friend and I got an
i3-2120
2x 4GB RAM
GTX 560
Corsair CX430

I plug it all into a PSU calculator and it said a 430Watt PSU is recommended.
I found a Corsair CX430 for cheap so I got it. But this only has a 6+2 PCIe power cable and the GPU needs 2 x 6 PCIe connections.
is it ok to get a splitter since the 6+2 cable should be rated for 150Watts and the 2 x 6 pin should take 75W each? or is using something like a molex to PCIe 6 pin a better idea?
I know that these sort of cables are avoided when possible but i forgot to check if it had 2 PCIe cables.
