Hello, I was wondering if I installed my new GPU correctly. I have installed two gpu's before and I have never had a problem. But today I installed the RX 5700 into my computer and I realized thatb the PCI pin I have is a 6 pin only and the GPU requires 8 pin. I plugged it in anyways and the graphics card does not even turn on.

is there an alternative one I can maybe buy? Because looking at the shipping it stuff its gonna be awhile to get it.
Everything takes a while to ship right now. It doesn't change the basic safety issues.

You'll survive having a 1050 Ti for a little longer than you would like. If you run an RX 5700 on underpowered junk, it may not. And even if it does, there's a reasonable chance that there's silent damage that shortens its lifespan.
