Question 9800GX2 power cables

Allright, so I bought myself a Leadtek 9800GX2 and I've no idea on how to install it. Apparently I don't have the required cables to feed enough power to it. The 9800GX2 has an 8-pin PCI-E plug and a 6-pin PCI-E plug, while my PSU only have one 6-pin PCI-E cable. I am assuming that you need to plug into both power ports on the card to give it enough power.

This is my current PSU:
HIPER - PRODUCTS - HIPERPOWER - Type M - HPU-4M580 - Feature

Which cables would I need to be able to give the 9800GX2 enough power?

according to newegg it has a 8pin and 6pin...

the PSU itself does seem like a bad brand/cheap so maybe that's your problem
