Can't find cable for installing video card

HELP!

I'm no expert so please bare with me.

Looking to install a video card I just purchased -
Zotac GEForce GTX 1060 (ZT-PT10620A-10M)

Fits and connects fine but I think I am short on power cables.

This video card appears to have an 8-pin connector and came with an 8pin to dual 6pin adapter, with the 8 pin side connecting to the video card (picture in link attached). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1X-ziPwtHeubY7ILFnRYCFq_hITY13frO

I have two 6-pin openings on my power supply, so in theory I believe this card should work properly if both 6 pin ends from the adapter are connected to my power supply.

I only have one 6 pin to 6 pin pci-e cable that came with my power supply (picture in link attached). So far I can't find another cable online of this exact kind.

I'm assuming finding this would do the trick once I plug both cables in but honestly I haven't done this in a while and I could be way off. Please confirm if this is the right cable I should be looking for, and if so what is it specifically called so I can find it?

If it helps at all I also have some 5-pin/hole(?) slots on my power supply available as well (apologies again, been a while).

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

That model number can't be found here.

Apologies

Model number is indeed off, typo, put an additional letter in there. The model is ZT-P10620A-10M.

I attempted installing with a single 6 pin from the 8-to-6 adapter plugged in and got an error message when turning on the PC to "please plug in the pci-e cable", which leads me to believe both are required (the 6 pin I had at the time was confirmed as "plugged in" at the time).

I have noticed that when I look for this card on Youtube the AMP Edition (not mine) is all I see in videos, which has a 6-pin outlet on the card as opposed to mine which has the 8-pin.

So your PSU has the 6 pin PCIe power plug.
