Replacing my PSU, but need a cable adapter. I hope you can help me out

Here is the issue, I need to upgrade the Graphics card because I am running AutoCAD programs (Advanced/3D), so I purchased a Nvidia GTX.  The recommended PSU is min. of 450W, which I have many of laying around. The problem is this is an ATX 24 pin PSU and my motherboard is 6 (ps2)+4 pin(ps1). Which is something weird HP came up with to force people to give them more money after they already gave them a lot of money. So my questions:

1. Is there a connector that I can use as an adapter? That would turn ATX into the 6-pin ps2 connector, and maybe the 4pin black/brown connector, I'm not sure what that thing is doing.

Obviously without buying a new PSU from HP, since I already have enough of them.
This is the one I have

I hope someone can help, thanks!

Before you purchase this adapter, as shown here, I would inquire above all connectors.
