How much RAM and what PSU do you have?

The parts really aren't all that bad at all. How much is your budget?

Because depending on what games you're trying to play, the 650ti can't handle it very well. It's a decent budget card, but not really meant for hardcore gaming.

I suggest upgrading to an eVGA GTX760 and an FX8350.

You have 6 6+2 PCI-E power connectors on that PSU. You should have no issues plugging in a 6pin.

No, you need both cables plugged in to run it.

You said earlier that you have a CM Silent Pro 1000, which has 6 6+2 PCI-E power connectors. You shouldn't need any adapter like the one you're linking.

In other words, it has 6 of these. 2 of which are needed for the video card. For the 6 pin, just undo the extra 2 and plug it in.
