My new Xenta 600w PSU does not have 3 pin to my gtx 1060 6gb graphics card and 2* 1 pin to my gtx 1060 6gb graphics card...and 2pin wire to my motherboard not have.

The Xenta 600w psu has 4pin pcie wire.2* of them.and 1* 4pin CPU wire. And about 4-6 sata wires spare.

Which wire(s) can I get that will fix the problem. Any website cheapest you know of?

I'm in England, UK.

what make/model 1060 Graphics card is it as most have a 6 pin power connection needed, sometimes this is made from a 6 pin and 2 pin that are on the same lead but can be seperated in case you only need the 6 pin. You talking about 3 pins is not something I have seen as there alway 2 or 4 or 6 or 8 as far as I know - hence I wonder what graphic card model you are using ?

googling Xenta PSU says the 600W has the following

  • 1 x 24 PIN
  • 12V 8 pin (4+4),
  • 5 x SATA
  • 2 x PCI-6+2 PIN, <<<<<<<<< this one has a 6 pin which I think you need.
  • 3 x 4 PIN

Can you post photos of the connections as it's not clear what you're describing? The normal graphics card connectors have 6-pins and 8-pins, not 1, 3 or 4.

Generally if a brand new PSU doesn't have the appropriate cables for newish hardware then it may not be capable of running it and you may be better returning the power supply and buying something different then trying to buy plug adaptors.

I cannot afford another PSU and I have opened it. Can't be bothered to return it. My graphics card takes 6 pin.and 2x 2 pin.my motherboard takes 4 pin.it didn't come with 6+2 pin.

Still makes very little sense, but if it didn't come with "6+2 pin and Motherboard wire" then its no good and cant be used
