The GTX 760 uses 160w with a 6-pin and 8-pin pci cables(that one screwed me up cause my psu has only 6-pin connectors).
I'm very low on money so I was trying to find a 14/16pin psu and only found the VS450, can it hold a GTX 760 with a Pentium E6700?(i know, bottleneck)

It has drawbacks, gone over in the recent review below.

https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/corsair-vs450-power-supply,6076.html Besides the shortcomings I'd note this from last page:

If you install this unit into a chassis with a good airflow and manage to keep the internal temperatures below 30 degrees Celsius, it will easily outlive the provided warranty. However the quality of your mains grid plays a significant role in this, as well. If the power quality in your area isn't high enough (lots of power cuts and/or brownouts), then you better use a quality UPS to power not only the VS450, but every electronic device you have. Voltage surges and brownouts are a leading cause of PSU failure.

But overall I'd side with the nay-sayers on this (also) recent Q https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/what-do-you-think-of-the-corsair-vs450.3479644/

In other words, it will, but far far better to invest a bit more, even if you have to save up, for THE base of your system. Maybe a holiday or some promo deal will get you a much more well rounded power source.
