I have purchased an RTX 3060 Ti Gaming OC recently, but it has only 1 x 8-pin connector, while the Gaming OC Pro and other 3060 Ti cards have 1 x 8-pin & 1 x 6-pin connector.
So is my 3060 Ti Gaming OC with only 1 x 8-pin enough to get full performance when gaming ?

if the pcb design only uses 1x8 pin, then it already supposed to know the power limit. Having more than 1 power slot means that the gpu is supposed to work in more frequency and use more power than standard base card, for example, GTX 1050Ti 75w (no pin power) VS GTX 1050Ti with pin power (uses more than 75w).
 
All 3060tis will perform within 2-7% of each other. Same goes with every other model ie 2070s, 1080s, 2080tis, 3090s and so on.

A higher power draw in the same model means that the card is made with higher clocks in mind which means better performance. That does not mean that it will perform so much better that you will notice it.
If the price difference is very small, do pick them, otherwise it's not worth it.
