I recently posted a question on here and it is markeed solved but its not solved as of yet.I checked the inside of my pc to look at the graphic card,i have beened asked it my power cord is a 6 pin or 8 pin connection.when I look at my card I only see one cord that is connected to the card but it looks to me that it is connected to a video port not a power source,the connecter I see has 2 rows of 6 pins.Is this the power source or is it something else?I took a pic of the inside of my pc but I do not know how to paste it to this post

To post images here, you will need to use a third party site like imgur.com or tinypic.com. Post the image there and then copy and paste the BBCode link to here, It would also help to know the exact model of the card in question.

I didn't ask about the cards you were considering, but the card you currently have.

There is something very wrong with that picture. What you have highlighted appears to be a connector for a separate output. These are often seen with low-profile cards. The PCI-E power connectors that are at the heart of the concerns would be at the other end of the card.

OK. The GT 730 generally does not require any extra power from the power supply. The new cards that you're looking at would need them. If your power supply does not have the necessary PCIE power cables for your new graphics card, it won't run. Given that it's only an older 460 watt PSU, I'd say that it probably needs to be replaced before you consider replacing your current graphics card.

The one looks like a PCIE 6-pin but I cannot say for certain. Since you have it open what is the model of the power supply?

I hope one of these numbers is the model no.(up/n hk560-18fp) (dp/n 6gxmo) (hu 460 am-00) (a/s 080-854-0066) I truly hope these are the right no.

RTX 2060 KO - This card has a 500 watt power recommendation and requires one 8-pin PCIE power cable.
GTX 1660 super - This card has a 450 watt power recommendation and requires one 8-pin PCIE power cable,
GTX 1660 mini - This card has a 450 watt power recommendation and requires one 8-pin PCIE power cable,

I'd probably be looking at a quality 550 watt unit with at least one 8-pin (6+2pin) PCIE power cable.
