Storage devices don't need either of them. I'm saying that since the thread has been posted in the Storage section. Also, if you're trying to use an adapter to power a device, your PSU is very likely not fit for the job.

No and no.
Adapters are almost never a good idea. If the PSU does not have the required connections and available power, you need a new PSU.

What are you trying to power, and with what power supply?
I have an PSU which has a extra 6 pin connector but I wanted to buy another motherboard which requires a 8 pin connector, so I wanted to should I use converter?

"everything" includes the power supply in question.
Yes, I have an old 500 psu, So that's why I wanted to know should I get a new psu? Or should I use old one
I also considered buy SilverStone ST50F-ES230 Essential 500W Non Modular 80 Plus psu
