Hello!

After a long wait im finally going to swap out my 1080ti with a 3080 card.

Then i noticed i need 3 8 pins connectors vs the two i have today, so im going to buy a 8 pin to 8 pin cable tomorrow so i have 3 separate cables going from my PSU to my 3080 card.

My question is if my PSU can handle it? I dont seem to quite understand the markings on my PSU. I tried swapping my pci cables from my current gpu and they fit several places becides the two on top right where i have them now. (See picture)

So does it matter where i plug my 3d cable in my PSU when i buy it and connect it to my GPU?

Im also including a picture of the cable im thinking of buying.

Thanks in advance for the answers.

The cable you linked is just extension cable. It will not work. Overall, you need cable that's made specifically for your PSU model, otherwise you risk frying your PC. Go to Corsair page to find out what exactly cable you need.
Also, check your PSU box, maybe there is a third cable lying there.
As for where to connect it, your PSU has 5 slots for PCIe cables: 2 in top row and 3 in middle row. All 8 pin slots can be used for PCIe cable. It does not matter which one of those you use. Again, as long as you use correct cable.
