Question

GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Supply Cable not connecting to older PC

Jan 16, 2017 11:11AM PST

So I recently bought a GTX 1050 Ti. It fits into my desktop but it comes with Power Cables that do not plug in to anywhere in my computer. The cables are the supplemental power cable and it is required for me to start up the computer using the 1050 Ti. My computer is a little outdated and has the plugs for cable supplements but they are way to small to plug in the Ti's power cable. Can I buy an adapter anywhere or what can I do to fix this problem?

P.S: This is what the computer's power supply cables look like.

I'm thinking SATA to 4 pin adapters.

Psu

What is this psu?
Read the label on the side of the psu and post the make and model.
Seems odd that you don't have a 6 pin aux connector.
Unless that psu is some 200w unit.
