Hello. Can anyone tell me if this PSU can handle this GPU?

GPU to install: https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Graphics-Card/GV-N207SGAMING-OC-8GD-rev-10-11#kf


My current PSU: Be Quiet 700W U9 80 Plus Bronze
it has 2 rails of 12V
12V1 (A) = 33
12V2 (A) = 25
It has 6+2Pin Conector x4 (2 for each rail)

If so, the GPU requires 6Pin and a 8Pin connection, this means i should use the Rail 12V1 which has more (A)? and plug in the 6Pin and the 6+2 Pin of that rail? or do i need to plug a 6Pin from 12V2 and then 6+2Pin from 12V1?.

If anyone is wondering my PC specs.

I5-10400F
ASUS PRIME B460m-a
2x 8GB RAM (XPG Adata) at 2666 MHz
1 SSD Crucial 500GB and 1 HDD 1TB Toshiba.
The PC Case is a Be Quiet 500DX

Planning to upgrade GPU without upgrading the PSU since the PSU only has 3 months of use (I'm using a old GTX 1050 TI EVGA Superclocked, so i wanted to change it to the Gigabyte one i linked) and changing CPU Fan stock to a Be Quiet Dark Rock Slim.

Sorry for my bad english.

Yes most definitely your PSU will be more than enough to run a 2070 Super.
Don't worry about it, your unit is perfectly fine.

You can do 6pin and 6+2 from the same cable but i wouldnt recommend it since it sometimes causes issues. To be completely sure just go with different cables.

Thanks for the fast reply. Is it safe then if i use the 12V1 rail to supply the GPU instead of the 12V2?. I was unsure about plugging 6Pin from the 12V2 and 6+2 Pin form the 12V1, but since each rail has 2x 6+2 Pin connectors for PCI. Then i should use only one that has more amps (A) right?.
