I recently got a power supply unit that has a 6+2 pin pcie connector but it’s notches doesn’t fit the orientation of my 8pin graphics card.

What is the make/model of your psu?
If modular, is the correct cable end plugged into the psu?

Power notches are keyed to only fit one way.
Look again, closer to verify that you are not trying to install upside down.
There will be a combination of square/rounded pins that need to match up.

A 'D' will fit into a square hole, but a Square pin will not fit into a 'D' hole. So even if the top row contains 2x square holes, the 'D' pin will still line up correctly.

And No, it shouldn't take any real amount of force to put the connector into the port, if it does, the connector is not the 6+2pin pcie, but the 8pin EPS, which you most definitely do not want to try forcing into a gpu port.
