Just wondering if I should power my GPU with 1 cable or 2? My PSU came with an 8pin cable that goes to 6+2 and then splits to another 6+2. should i use that or use two separate cables? Saw a thread about this topic but it was for a 1070. Just want to make sure a 2080 isn't different. This is my first build. Thanks for any help.
 
Which PSU do you have ? And, how many PCI-E cables come with it ? And how many PCI-E connectors does your GPU require, 6 pin + 8 pin ?

Btw, there are no separate 8-PIN PCI/PEG connectors, as they all come as a 6+2-PIN splitter cable.

EVGA G3 650w - It came with two different PCI-E cables. One has a single 6+2 and the other has (2) 6+2. The GPU requires 6pin + 8pin.

Yeah sorry about the lack of information. I've been researching this build for a few months now. Still pretty new to a lot of this stuff. Appreciate your help and patience.
