DON'T use a cable from another PSU that wasn't designed for this unit. You're risking damaging your PSU and graphics card, if not worse. not even kidding.

what PSU and what Video Card do you have?
The graphic card is:
ASUS Dual GeForce GTX 1060 DirectX 12 DUAL-GTX1060-O3G 3GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

The PSU is:
LEPTON 500W 80 PLUS® Gold PSU

I have pictures if I need to send!

your PSU should have a single 6+2pin PCIe cable. just use the 6pins and let the 2pin next to it unconnected
I found out that it didnt come with those parts! I have contacted the seller to try and get the parts. However in the event I cant get the parts, should I just buy a whole new power supply?
