Hi! First time to have my own pc and I may have a problem installing my graphics card. It needed a 4-pin ATX connector but my PSU doesn't have an extra ATX connector, is it possible to have a 4-pin Peripheral to 4-pix ATX assembly? just to compensate, or there is a need to buy another psu? Thanks guys!
 
Your Graphics card depending on which one you have use the PCIe slot to get it's power and PCIe Cables 6+2 pin if the GPU has power connectors. You do not use the extra 4 pin CPU power connector if you already have a 8 pin CPU power connector. The extra 4 pin is for extreme overclocking.

You don't seems to have an issue. What is your full system specs including that PSU brand and model?

Do not confuse PCIe Cable 6+2 pin to ATX power connector 8 and 4 pins. That's for your CPU and the PCIe cable is for your GPU.
