So i have a PSU 600w MS industrial, it has only one 8pin connector(4+4) and one 6 pin, but my MSI gtx 1060 6gb needs an 8pin connector, so what would my best option be? To get a 6pin to 8pin connector or some other way? All help is much appreciated,thank you in advance

The 4+4 motherboard connector is not the same as an 8 pin PCIE connector, just FYI.

The 6 pin PCIE connector might work via an adapter, but the 6 pin PCIE connector is for 75 watts, whereas the 8 pin PCIE connector is for 150 watts, so you are taking a chance using an adapter.

I'd get a proper power supply with an 8 pin PCIE connector.
