RTX 3060 ti Pin adapter ?

I'm still new to all of this ( build my firsts pc a few months ago ). I was lucky enough to pick up a RTX 3060 TI today. I'm currently using a 2070 super. the 2070 uses 1x6pin and 1x8pin, while the 3060 ti uses 2x8pin. Would I need to buy an 6 to 8 pin adapter if I want to use the 3060 TI without changing my power cables? and if you could link me on amazon just to make sure I buy the right one would be very much apricated. Thank you. 

my current build

3060ti i think only requires one 8 pin connector 

Thats for the reference design of the 3060ti this specific gpu has 2x8pin

there are some 6 pin to 8pin adapters that have another power source like molex or sata power supplementing the 6 pin to make up the difference but these methods are usually not recommended. But as for if your gpu requires it that is most likely the case as many times companies like ASUS, gigabyte and MSI tend to factory overlock their top tier gpu's causing higher power draw than the OEM spec

i can only assume if it has a 2x8 pin then it also has a duel bios, one bios being balanced and only needing one 8 pin while the other is for overclocking needing both 2x8 pins

Your power supply should have at least 2x 8 pins already, the 2 extra pins that hang off when you use the 6 pin can be bundled on to make an 8-pin.

The EVGA 650W GM should already have 4x PCI-E 6+2 Pin connectors.

On that existing PCI-E 6-pin, just connect the loose 2-pin to make it an 8-pin.

You'll have 2x PCI-E 8-pin power connections. Good to go.
