Building a computer for the first time.

On my card, there are 2 8pin connecting areas. I am not sure how to connect my wires to it to the PSU.

In the second picture, I have a few different things. The left one is a 8pin connector splitting into 2 male molexes. I have 2 of these. The middle one is a 6+2 PCIe connector to a 6pin connector in a 8pin cap. I'm assuming 6pin is for the PSU end. The last one is a 6pin PCIe connector to a 6pin connector in a 8pin cap. Not pictured, I have 2 cords from my modular PSU that have female molexes on one end and a connector to the PSU.
What should be my method of hooking these up? I am confused because I don't have a 2nd 6+2 PCIe connector for the both 8pin connectors on the PSU. Thanks.

You need to use the 6+2 and then the adapter from 2 x molex to 8 pin for the other.
What is the make model of your PSU?
