Hello, I just bought a Geforce GTX1650 to replace my GTX560 card. The card I just removed had 8 pins plugged into the card. Two 6 pin and one 2 pin. The main 6 pin is numbered R14 pigtailed to that is another 6 pin plug R15 with a 2 pin plug. Could I just plug in the main 6 pin plug into the card or would I need a whole new cable with a 6 pin only? I have posted my specs below. Please let me know if I am missing any information. Thanks in advance!

6+2 pin PCIe cable is for either 6 or 8pin cards. The +2 can be separated for a card requiring only 6. It's fine to use, don't need another cable.
Thanks for the quick reply! So its ok to plug the main 6 pin which is marked as P14 and just let the other 6 pin and 2 pin plugs (which are pigtailed off the P14) loose or would I need to tape them up.
