Help powering graphics card

Graphics card has an 8 pin connector. Only options I have left from PSU are a 6+2 pci deal or an adapter that came from graphics card with 2x6 pins. I have pictures but don't know how to post if that would help.

  1. What GPU and PSU are you talking about?
  2. I have a xfx pro 550w psu and asus directCU II OC graphics card
  3. What Asus card is it?
  4. Best answer
    That PSu has two 6+2 pin power connectors for the GPU so it should easily run ANY GPU.
  5. so I can use the 6+2 and have no issues?
  6. The PSU has two cables for the GPU. Both are 6+2 Pin connectors. The are for the GPU. DO NOT use any adapters.

    What GPU are you using? Like the model?
  7. The 6+2 connection is to allow for compatibility between 6 or 8 pin connectors on graphics cards. As tiny voices said, that connection is for your graphics card, so use that rather than going with an adapter.
