Default 2 Molex to PCIE Adapter

Currently have a SFF pc with a 300W power supply built in. I used Kill-a-watt to check power draw and it's at 115W on load.

Do you think if I get a 2 Molex to PCIE power adapter that I could stick something like a 9800GT in there?

It's a non-standard PSU unfortunately and I love my case!
