When you use adapters or a splitter, you're not using as many conductors and this will cause resistance that will cause voltages to drop.  Also, there's the resistance in the adapter's connector itself.   A Molex only has one +12V.  PCIe has three.  It's simple Ohm's law math.

 

You can get the cables off eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Corsair-8-PIN-TO-6-2-PIN-PCIE-PCI-e-cable-for-type-3-or-TXM-HX-AXi-series/153344740445?

I wonder...have you tried using the Amazon US site and buying it from there? It's $20 USD (AmazonGlobal Shipping to Canada is $7.06, cord is $12.99 USD)

 

Edit: Either that, or buy a EVGA BR 450w for ~$70 CAD or SeaSonic S12III 500w for ~$65 CAD

 

Edit 2: I'm half stupid, forgot you were Crossfiring two r9 270s. Then you would have to spend ~90-100 CAD on something like the CV 650w or Gigabyte P650B for enough wattage

If crossfire is 100% percent out for the ocz 600w power supply I already have , then I can just use a single gtx 580 its asus so it’s red and black and fits the build . So like that’s not really a concern . I just need freaking 6+2 to plug Into the gpu . 2 of them . The ocz I already have is semi modular so those cables Jonny post work . They are just 100 bucks for a fucking cable lol no thank you , I’ll just buy an entirely new power supply at that point . But trying to save myself and not have to do that . Im in Canada, I live in Canada , so no matter what , I’m paying the difference, and the difference is what makes these things too expensive. Our dollor is complete and udder shit . So if I’m spending 20 of them I better be getting 2 cords ffs lol I will purposely take what you guys gave me and retype things in and see what I can find for a better deal , but either shit just dosnt show up for me , cause I’m on mobile most of the time , or either I can’t find a better deal and everything is just more expensive.
