Since I have a gt 730 and I am deciding to upgrade from that to a rx 580 would I need to buy pins? I’m not sure if I need a pin or do I need to buy a 8 pin for the rx 580. Also what would happen if my psu doesn’t have enough wattage for the rx 580?

If your mean the 8-pin pcie cable, and from what you said here, you will need a new PSU, not the 8-pin cable, if your PSU does not have the 8-pin cable, a good brand 550W PSU at lease.
Also what would happen if my psu doesn’t have enough wattage for the rx 580?
The PC will not start, or the RX580 will kill the PSU, and may also kill other PC components, like the MB.

We recommend to buy the new PSU when you upgrade the old GPU to a powerful GPU.
