I'm blind. I actually have a 6+2 connector on it. So now I can use the 2x6 -> 1x8 connector along with the 6+2 connector. In the long term is that a bad thing? Should I still go and buy different connectors when I can?
nope if you have the 6+2, then you are set! no worries at all, just plug in that one and the adapter
