I bought a AORUS RX 570 4GB graphics card and it needs a 8 pin connector but my PSU doesn't have any PCI-E Cables.
I have a Ryzen 3 2200g with VEGA 8 onboard graphics but I wanted to upgrade my gpu.
My PSU is ATX-500B
My motherboard - Gigabyte GA-A320M-S2H V2
Can anyone suggest what should I do?
Buy a new PSU that will fit my system?
Or some sort of adapter that I could buy and use?

If the PSU doesn't have any PCIe connectors, then it wasn't really designed to run a graphics card.

Yes, you should buy a replacement PSU.

Something like an Corsair CX550 would do. Depends on what you want to spend and what is available.

Is that a Coolmax power supply?
I would get something like a Seasonic or Corsair around 650 watts.
I run a couple RMx Corsairs and they've been good.
Also, I wouldn't use adapters with your current PSU.
There are too many issues that can come up

Modular Connector:
1x 6-pin PCI-Express Connector;
1x 6+2-pin PCI-Express Connector;
3x Peripheral Connectors;
3x 15-pin SATA Connectors;
1x 4-pin Floppy Connector

The supply, in general, isn't all that great but it "Should" have what you need.


Is that a Coolmax or Shark Technology ATX-500? Neither is great, the Shark is downright dangerous and either should be replaced with at least a 500W of a decent brand name.
