My System Specs

Default 6pin to 8pin

so i am wondering if its possible to get a 6pin to 8pin adapter for my power supply. i currently have 1 6970 that takes 2 8pins and would like to add a second 6970 to run crossfire, my power supply has more than enough amps and watts to handle both cards except i have 2x8pin connectors and 2x6pin ones, anyone got any ideas.

the extra 2 are just grounds you can use the cards without them I think it just disables overclocking ability
