Ok so I'm not extremely Tech savvy and a newb at PC gaming/building. I'm Upgrading my MSI Gtx 1070 Aero OC which has a 1x8 pin slot to a new RTX 2070 which has a 1x6, 1x8 pin, I have no idea how to go about this, I saw something about the gpu will come with a molex adapter to 6 pin, but from what I can see there are like 3 molex ports coming from my PSU one white and 2 black, Idk which one to use, Oh and btw my PSU is a corsair cx650m
