PSU is modular so you just need the cable. From your picture it seems like it is not connected so unless you have it somewhere in the box you will need to buy one - and unfortunately buying new PSU might be cheaper then cable alone depending on what PSU model you have (as cables must match the model).

some psu connectors for a gpu have the 8 pin split 6+2, they do that because some gpu's require just a 6 pin, for gpus requiring 8 pin just add the 6+2 together as 1 connector
