I have never heard of that brand.... If whatever model you have turns out to be "fine", then yes it would work. But that is likely not the case. Typically if a PSU doesn't have a 6 pin, you wouldn't want to use a GPU with it.

My PSU don't have 6 pin connector for graphics card gtx 1650 super which I'm going to buy. But I have 2 X molex connector. Is it bad if I use 2 X molex to 6 pin connector ?

If you need to use those to use your gpu, then your psu can't handle your gpu. You'll need to upgrade your psu first, or risk frying something.

Its not "that bad", but the fact the PSU doesn't have a 6 pin indicates its not a very high quality PSU.... What PSU is it? How many watts?

If a psu is capable to provide enough power to have a 6 pin pcie connector the manufacturer will put it on. the fact that there isn't even a pcie connector on it means that the manufacturer probably knows it cant supply the power and intentionally left it out.
