Is my power supply enough to run the graphics card? If so what cable do I need ? The power supply is a thermaltake smart series 750w. My computer doesn’t recognize the video card with the cables currently connected to it. The mother board it an ASUS Prime X470-Pro. Any help would be great.

Which video card are you trying to recognize?

As far as your PSU being able to run a graphics card. A 750 watt PSU should be able to run the vast majority of graphics cards.

Different graphics cards take different plugs from the PSU. Some take none. Some take a 6 in plug. Some take an 8 pin plug. Some take a 6 and an 8 pin....and I think that some might take two 8 pins but I don't recall.

Te 8 pin goes into the graphics card itself? I have my coworker who build the pc for me trying to help but we cant figure out why my computer doesn't recognize the graphics card. He has it set up with the 6+2 pin in the card itself and the 8 pin going into the power supply.

Do you have the 6+2-Pin Power cable connected from the power supply to the graphics card?

It has the 8 pin going into the power supply. Which i think is wrong. The 6+2 is going into the graphics card. I know the book that came with the card says 8 pin to the card but i cant find a cable with the correct connectors.
