I'm going to be getting a 8800gtx when the price drops a bit more, and I realised, hey, I dont have 2 6pin pci-e things on my psu, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16817182037

Since the 8800gtx needs 2 power connections, I was looking at this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16812201003

or maybe something like this:

... but the problem with this one is, the 4pin ends are male? Wouldn't I need female to connect to my PSU?

So, would either of these solutions cause any problems?

you want male ends, your gonna lose 4 molex connections just so you know, and the card comes with the adapters you need.

Also, I would not be splitting PCI-E connections, too much resistance.
