Thank you for the answer. The single cable with 2x8 pins is my only problem/hesitation from having the gpu. So just to confirm 1 last time. My psu Single cable with 2x8 (2x 6+2) pins is compatible with Zotac Gtx 1070 ti that requires 2x8pins?

While I would rather have the card fed with 2 separate PCIe cables, I would have no qualms using your arrangement on that PSU. It all depends on the wire size used for the PCIe cable's trunk line. The 1070 Ti hits about 183W gaming. That relates to about 15.5A @ 12V. Divided by 3 (wires) is about 5A that each wire would have to handle. Even tiny #20 AWG wire is able to handle that. I presume Seasonic uses bigger than #20 wire. Probably #18 min, maybe even #16.

Now, if you plan to OC the card, that's a whole different ballgame. Then I would be hesitant using the single split cable.

If you still feel uneasy with those split connectors, use the PSU while you save for a different one.

I don't plan to OC at all. I will just use stock/default. My PSU doesn't have seperate 8pin, Only 6+2 & 6+2 under 1 cable.
Anyway thanks for the answer. It really helps a lot. Got the card and using it now without any problem.
