I got a new nvidia gtx 1050 ti and it requires a 6 pin cable to power it, only my computer seems to have NO 6 PIN CABLES. NONE. how do I solve this issue and play my games. I have a 300w power supply, the factory standard one. It should be strong enough, but it just doesn't have the connections I need and I dont know what new psu will even fit my computer if I need to replace it. Please. Anyone???

@Ryanisblind , welcome to the forum.
Your best option is to upgrade the power supply unit (PSU). The 300W PSU is the minimum required to operate the video card properly. It is normally recommended to buy a PSU with at least 100W to 150W more than the manufacturer stated requirements. You can buy any standard ATX PSU. I suggest measuring the space where it will be installed to assure the one you choose will fit.
Here is a PSU that should work for you: https://www.newegg.com/corsair-rmx-series-rm550x-cp-9020177-na-550w/p/N82E16817139231
These are the dimensions of the PSU: 3.39" x 5.91" x 6.30"
It has all of the cables that you need and is full modular. This means that you only have to use the cables that are absolutely needed. It allows for better airflow in the case. Heat is your enemy.
