Most will either be a single 6 or single 8, but you could run into some that have 6+8

depends on the model

 

entry-level 1060s go with a 6 pin connector, higher-end ones usually have an 8 pin

 

as for 1070s you will mostly see a single 8 pin but some others opt for 8+6

 

I wouldn't be concerned about wattage, though the VS450 is a rather mediocre PSU
