Hey, I had a fairly old pre-built I was looking to soup up, so I bought a corsair 750watter, only to find it doesn't have a 4 pin! Could I use a 6 pin for a pcie without a spark jumping? If not, am I SOL?

No you cannot. If it has an eight pin for the board instead of a four pin on most models you can seperate them into two four pin connectors.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
