I have problems with connecting my graphic card to PSU
My PSU has 4 pin connector while connector that I got with my GPU has 3 pins. Pls look at the pictures to fully understand what I am talking about because English is not my native

This is what my GPU has:

This is what my PSU has:
https://images.app.goo.gl/Chvuwc2GdT6s2MVA8

CAN I CONNECT THESE 2 ?

Edit 1: Power supply is decade old 550W it's called something like MS-550
Edit 2: my main question is will my GPU work ?

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Please include the make and model of your PSU and age if it's used/old. The thumb rule with a PSU in a build is, if your PSU lacks the necessary connectors for your components, it's highly likely that the PSU you have is not meant for the job, at all.

Yes, you can connect those two, but when it comes to the Power Supply, adapters of any kind are NOT recommended.

Can you take a photo from the sticker on the side of the psu and post it here?

You can use Imgur to post a picture here,use the "img" link.
Click "new post" ->choose "upload images" -> "browse" ->choose the picture and click "open" ->put cursor on the picture that you uploaded->choose "share links" and copy the img link,paste it in your next post.
Or at least tell how much Amps on the +12V rail and if there are more of the +12V rails.
