Planning to upgrade the Nvidia Quadro K1200 to either the PNY RTX 2080 Ti Blower Edition or PNY Quadro RTX 4000, both of which require auxiliary 8-pin power connectors. The power supply (750 watt) is more than sufficient to power either of the cards but provides two 6-pin connectors and no 8-pin connectors. From reading the specs for both cards, it appears that standard 6-pin to 8-pin cables will work: one for the RTX 4000 and two for the RTX 2080 Ti. Am I reading this correctly?

Thanks,
Bill

Better not use adapter cables on such GPUs with high power draw for safety issues, improper cables could also damage the motherboard and GPU
