Hi,
How do I connect my psu to my gpu?
I have an evga 1600w g2 psu and a gigabyte aorus Xtreme rtx 2080ti gpu.
My gpu has 2 8pin connectors and my psu has multiple 8pin vga connectors.
I've alredy tried to connect the psu to my gpu multiple times put there's a text on my monitor that says 'you need to connect your psu to your gpu?'
What should I do?
Thanks in advance!

Take two of the the 8 pin modular cables labelled vga that came with your power supply, plug them both into the power supply in vga slot 1 and 2, make sure they are all the way in, there will be a click. Then the opposite end into the two 8pin connectors on the card, again you want to push until there is a click and the small tab on the connector will sit flat. If you need leverage to push them in to the card, reach to the back of the shroud directly opposite the connectors to hold the card steady when you plug them in. Don’t use force that will bend or tilt the card. Be sure to do this with the computer off and the power switch on the psu set to off,

Thanks, for your comment, had already figured out the problem and realised that the roundish-shaped pin in my 6+2 connector is actually universal and thus fitting to the square-shaped one.
