GPU power plugs.

So I have a Dell Precision T5500 that I am trying to use as an OBS NDI encoding server. I want to put my old GTX 760 for hardware encoding to take some load off of encoding on the dual Xeon X5550s. Here is the problem The power supply is 855Watts but only has 2 6-pin power plugs, the GTX 760 needs 1 6-pin and 1 8-pin. My question is, since I won't be gaming on the server box but rather will be encoding, long-term, will the 760 be ok running on just 2 6-pin power plugs?

It will probably not work with just two 6 pins.

You will need a 6 to 8 pin adapter.

On the spec sheet, it says that "Supplementary Power Connectors: Two 6-pin". What does that mean?

That means it needs 2 6pin power connectors to deliver the needed electricity. Idk if it'll work with just the 6 pins and not a 6+8pin.

I just hate how I am hitting the limit of this server box when I can't build a new server for anything less than $1,000. So I thought I'd do what I could on a budget.

A 6 to 8 pin adapter should only cost 5-10 dollars, so not that much.

So I would go Molex to a special 8-pin that fills the spot for the 8 and use the normal 6-pin for the 6-pin plug?

No, use one original gpu 6pin, and a gpu 6pin to 8pin adapter for the 8pin plug on the gpu. Molex shouldn't be required.

 

Something like this: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812200420&ignorebbr=1&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-PC-_-pla-_-Cables+-+Internal+Power+Cables-_-N82E16812200420&gclid=Cj0KCQiAuZXQBRDKARIsAMwpUeRH1ckv5AHpAeVaPaCk1q0zzw4RY2RA484__AnkQzLt8ukNDQ5Wdv4aAoS_EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

Just use a 6 to 8, it's just extra grounding.
