I just got ahold of a hold of a GTX 1080 with an 8 pin and 6 pin PCI-E connector. My old graphics card only had an 8 pin connector, and I do not have any extra PCI-E cables. Would a Y splitter be a good solution? or should I get another 6+2 PCI-E cable? In that case can anyone help me find extra cables, my PSU is a supernova evga G2 850.

850W power supply should have several PCIe cables. Do you just not have them anymore?

If so, you can buy replacements:

You should not use a splitter.
Yes I unfortunately don't have them anymore. But thanks for the help everyone, will get in contact with EVGA and try to get some cables from them. If not I'll order a 6, 6+2 cable from cablemod!
