I'm planning to buy a GTX 1660 ti or maybe even a RTX 2060 but im faced with a problem. I went out to go and see how much a GTX and a RTX before i go a buy them but then i realized that they need 8 pin but my psu only has two 6 pins its a Xigmatek calibre 600w with 80 plus bronze rating. I could just buy a GTX 1660 ti and buy a new psu but that would be a total waste of money since i'm just using this PSU for just under a year, and if i do buy a new PSU that means i miss out on future-proofing-ish my pc with a 2060. So my question is, does my psu meet the requirements and can a 6 pin able to run a graphics card that needs 8 pin. The only thing i've heard is that the 2 pins is for grounding, but i can't find a direct answer, always yes and then someone will say no. Thanks

sorry my bad its a xigmatek calibre 600w which is not listed on their site for some reason. It says it has 80+ bronze on the box but no 6+2 pin
