Default PCI-E Graphics card auxilliary power?

My mobo (Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe) has a 4-pin male molex connector to connector to the auxiliary power of my graphics card.

My graphics card (Asus EN6800GT) has a wierd 6-pin connector to be powered with auxiliary power. Supplied with the gfx card was a male molex to wierd 6-pin connector.

My problem is that I cannot connector a male molex to a male molex... I guess what I need is a female to female molex cable but I don't know where to get one? I live in Australia but am happy to order a cable from overseas if neccessary.

i dont think u connect that unless its in sli mode, well its that way with my motherboard at least, usually u get one of the 6 pron connectors and plug it straight into the graphics card, u should have one of those coming out of your power supply somewhere so what psu u using?

im almost 100% certain thats just with sli because i have the same connector on my motherboard but it says only to use it with sli, just plug one of those 6 pin connectors directly into the card and it will work
