Noted, haha :P

But the reason why I mentioned a second PCI-e 6 Pin connector is because the specifications on the graphics card mentions Supplementary power connectors:

I'm not completely sure if it was referring to two 6 Pin Power Connectors, or something else.

Unfortunately, I was unable to check out my PSU, I had a very busy day. But I'll find out how many 12/5v rails it has tomorrow for sure and get back to you A.S.A.P

And Fabe, the manufacturing company of my computer is CyberPower PC's. But I do remember my PSU having a PCI-e connector, vaguely however. But I'm pretty sure it was a single 4-Pin? I could be mistaken but I will find out for sure tomorrow.

Thank you all for your support so far, I'm very grateful for the help I'm receiving, and I apologize for not being able to get to my computer today.
