Installing Corsair CX500M Power Supply

My son and I are trying to build a gaming PC. I have a Corsair CX500M power supply, and a Geoforce GTX 650 video card. The video card has a 6 pin connector, which I assume should be connected to a 6 pin output from the power supply. But the only cable that has (2) 6-pin connectors has them too close together to reach the video card from the power supply.

One of the cables has an 8 pin on the end, with (2) 6+2 connectors . Can I use one of those?

Thanks in advance.

yes, 6+2 connectors are made so that they can support an 8 pin or 6 pin connection.

Thank you so much. Fired it up, and am installing the operating system right now. Mods can mark this "solved."
