Ok I got Seasonic M12 700W ... but it oryginaly came with 2x 6p pci-e cables.
Now I'm planning on buying new assu gtx580 and it neews 2x 8p cables.
My PSU has basically output for 2 6p cables so my question is do I have to buy new PSU also or for now I can buy some 6p to 8p cables and be fine with it? Or it's not advised?
|Also where I can buy those cables if this kind of thing is possible?

Which specific Asus model are you looking at getting? Stock 580s require a 6pin and an 8 pin, so your power supply would be able to handle that using 2 x 6 pin to 8 pin cable, and 2 molex to 6 pin cable.

edit: those cables are also provided with the card you buy so you don't need to buy them separately.

Your best bet is to try and find some molex to 8-pin PCI-E or 6-pin PCI-E to 8-pin PCI-E adapters.

Certainly not; your Seasonic is plenty for a system with a single GTX 580.
