hello, I have a PSU its 750 watt psu, it has 4 different plugs with the 6 pin but no 8 pin. I was interested in 390x which required a 6 pin and 8 pin. Will buying Dual-PCI-e-6-pin-to-8-pin-PCIe-Video-Card-Power-Adapter work instead of buying a new PSU?

Please post a link to, or a picture of the sticker of, the exact PSU you have

Does it have a cable that has a 6 pin with a 2 pin in one cable? (Separate connectors)

I can not speak to the quality of that psu but the wire adapter you linked should work fine.

Depending on the GPU you buy it should come with the connector you linked to earlier.

That said, I wouldn't trust that PSU as far as I can throw it.
It's made by Sirtec, which isn't the best OEM to begin with, then likely slapped with a label that exaggerates its abilities by Sentey.
