Hello, I'm currently building my pc. I have a Thermaltake toughpower 750 watt. I only have 1 8 pin connector for the motherboard but I also need an 8 pin connector for my GPU and the the 8 pin connector for the motherboard is also too short to reach even the shortest way. I have the Asus Rog Strix X570 E-gaming and a gtx 680 currently (waiting for the 3080) Do I get an extension cable or? Any help would be appreciated

Oh yeah, but my gtx 680 uses a 6 pin PCI-E and a 8 pin something? but I only have the 6 pin PCI-E and what extension cables do you recommend for the 8 pin Connector to the motherboard? it's too short.
 
The psu should have come with a cable that had 6+2 connectors. The last 2 pins are removable so you can use in either 6 or 8 pin sockets.

Edit: Just checked and that psu should come with 2 cables each with 2x6+2 plugs. You should not need any other cables.
