    I wouldn't buy a new PSU just for cable length. You can either buy the connectors and make your own, or simply buy an extender.

    600W is fine for your graphics card, however what amperage does it provide on the 12v rails?

    I think 8 pieces of 1mm wire (4black and 4 yellow) and some heatshrink plus 10minutes to solder it into place would be the easiest and cheapest route.
