Question How many PSU pins does MSI r9 390 require?

Need to know this due to me getting gpu artifacts, and my PSU only having 1 6x2 pin, which could be the reason why I get them in the first place.

Artifacts are usually bad news about video memory.
We already had this discussion, I already done the synthetic test, it's not the memory IC, and I want to make sure that I even have enough power connectors in the first place.
Do you know how much pins AMD MSI R9 390 requires?

Sorry, overlooked you nickname. <300w card (<25A @12V). It has 6+2 and 6 pin connectors as far as I see.

Should be a 8 pin and a 6 pin. Would depend on the exact model but about a 275 watt card.
Would I somehow be able to plug it in using only one of those? If yes - it is the power supply that kills my gpu up with artifacts, if not - it's the gpu itself and I am going to have a bad time selling it for cheap.
