This might be a dumb question but I cant find the answer anywhere. Can someone please tell what the "Peripheral/SATA" means. What exactly is a 'peripheral' in a power supply? Bigger question: Can I plug my graphics card into that pinout?

Your video card should go on a PCIe output, they can use either 6 or 8 pin depending on the card. I believe that the "peripheral" connectors are for the Molex 4 pin type cable.

Well now the problem is my graphics card has two 6 pin outputs and my PSU only has 8 pin outputs for pci-e. Can I put a 6pin into an 8pin?

There are two modular PCI Express Supplementary power cables with that PSU. Each of those modular cables have two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors on them.

A (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector can be used as either a 6-pin or an 8-pin PCI-E power connector. When used as a 6-pin PCI-E connector the +2-pin portion is left unconnected.
