2x 4 pin connectors equal an eight one?

I know that it sounds stupid, i bought a new video card that requires an eight pin connector. I have in my case one 6 pin and two 4 pin(in the same sleve). Can I use the 2x 4 pins as a 8 pin one? Thanks for your time!

    2x 4 pins in the same sleeve is probably an 8 pin EPS connector, NO, you cannot use this as an 8 pin pcie connector

    Do you you have a separate 4 pin ATX connector for cpu power ?

    There is an adapter that will allow you to use the EPS connection for pcie, I only reccomend it for single rail power supplies
