Default Cheap Option With 24+8+4 Power Connectors?

I have a server motherboard (Tyan dual proc LGA771) that I don't know if it works. The problem is that my extra power supplies don't have enough connectors to power up the board correctly and check.

I've found a couple, but they all seem to be 800W+, and over $150, which seems excessive for a PS for testing and then sitting on a shelf.

Any ideas?

My System Specs


There are 6-pins (PCie) to 8-pins (EPS) cable converters that exist, much cheaper option.

Works 6 Pin PCI-E Male to 8 Pin EPS Female Cable Adapter 12IN - Works - CB-6M-44F

There are others too, 2x molex to 8-pins (EPS). No need to buy a new PSU just for a test.
