Default New Build, PSU problem..

Hi All, a friend ordered a bunch of parts to build a new PC but planned to use his 6 month Hiper 580w. It seems like a solid PSU and has modular cables, however, it only has the standard 4 pin cpu power cable, and his motherboard has an 8 pin attachment. He has one of the MSI P6N boards a Sli-Fi.

Also, he bought a 9800gtx. It looks like it requires 2 PCI-E connectors, the Hiper only has 1 PCI-E.

Any options here, or does he have to get another PSU?
