old to new pc build. I need some advice.

I plan on building a mid to high end pc later in 4-6 months. One peace at a time lol

Right now I have :
2x)Patriot 2gb ram ddr2 800mhz 5-5-5-12 @2.0v
2x)nvidia sli ready 2gb pc2 6400 4-4-4 @2.1v
msi gtx 960 4gd5t oc (need's to be conected to a 8 pin)
asus p5b deluxe (need's to be conected to a 24 pin and a 8 pin)
intel e6758 2.66ghz

Athena Power FlexATX 300W model AP-MFATX30 (the mobo pin conecter is cut off, 4 pin and 6 pin conectores).
Bestec model ATX-250-12z (20 pin mobo conector and a 4 pin)

sata to 6 pin adapter
2 molex's to 8 pin adapter
2x)molex to sata adapter's

The only peace I care about is the grafix card.

Is this ok to set up or is the grafixs card in danger without geting a beader psu(s)/adapters ?

  1. Don't even try. Wait till you get all the parts then do it. 300 watts isn't even enough to cover one card. You could put together everything except for the GPUs right now

  2. ok ill get the psu('s) I want for my mid to high end pc. shuld I get 1 exspensive psu? sumthing like 1200w. Or get 2 500w psu's. Is using adapters realy a bad idea ? I thaink i'll use the 300w for the board+cpu and get a 500w for grafix card. what shuld I do about the 8pin on mobo(cpu). The 300w psu only has a blue 6pin and a black 4pin.

    Odd thaing is that the msi web site say that the grafix card only need's 180w.. Or sumthing like that .

    Normally all one would need is a good quality 550W to 650W PSU will give headroom for future upgrades etc.

    Seasonic is on of the best.

    The higher end Corsairs are good, like the RMX and RMI series.

    EVGA G2 and G3's.
