I just got my EVGA RTX 3070 Ti but the power supply in my old card had 2 6+2 pin plugs. The new RTX 3070 has two 8 pin plugs. That apparently didn't work and I need to find a cable for 12 pin pc1e to 8 pin.

What do I need for a cable for my Be Quiet! Power Zone 750W? I'm running into problems finding the right cable. Am I going to need a new PSU?

Directly from EVGA's website:

Requirements
  • Minimum of a 750 Watt power supply.
  • Two available 8-pin or 6+2pin PCIe power dongles
  • Total Power Draw : 290 Watts
I have a 750w PSU, but the 6+2pin PCIe power goes to a pig tail and doesn't seem to work. I'm thinking I might need a new PSU since this one has been with me for a couple systems. So I'm now looking into which PSU I'd be best off going with (having blown through my budget).
