Can I use a molex to 6-pin to power my GTX 1050 Ti. Also it says it minimum psu output wattage
500 watt then at the bottom it says Recommended PSU: 300 W
I have a 300 watt. Will it work?

Don't use adapters if your PSU needs one it shouldn't be running the card.

Get a slot powered 1050ti that doesn't need the 6 pin.

If your on a budget and you want that card

Or if you don't want to upgrade PSU

You CAN use a molex to 6 pin for your 1050 ti. Do not worry; your PSU can handle it. Reason being - 10xx series cards have extremely power efficient architecture, therefore it won't chug the power out of your system. Go right ahead and use the adapter.

Bad advice don't run it with adapters.
