Default psu problem

okay my dad bought a gtx 260 of of his friend that has 2x6 pin connector
However his psu has no 6 pins and he need's 24 pin for his moterboard
And 4pin for his dvd rom

His psu is:680W G7 Power Extreme ATX PSU : PC Power Supplies : Maplin Electronics

So were guessing he needs a new one so could you make any recs

Thats really strange for a 680W not to have 6-pin or 6+2-pin connectors, or enough molex connectors to use adapters.

Corsair CX500, OCZ MXSP 500, OCZ ZS 550, XFX CEP 550.
