The 6800XT don't really need 3 connections it's 300ish W, it'll work with only 2 (each 150W + 75W from the board), my 3080 only has 2 and needs more power

If you don't have the needed connectors then it simply wont work.

 

What psu do you have?

It'll work with one double connector using only 1 PSU slot, plus the second one

Yes but what if op does not have that. That is why I am asking. This question can go 2 ways.

yeah, it doesn't make sense to me why the card has 3x8 pin when 2x8 gives it plenty of power

The 650m has 2x 6+2 x2 cables so you can plug it in. If it only has one you can buy an official extra

so, pigtails or splitters whatever there called don't really matter in this case sense it is getting plenty of power from 2x8 pins, correct?
