Question: PSU for TUF gaming rx 7900xtx

Level 7


I am currently building a new Pc. My chosen components arrived today. I have a TUF Gaming RX 7900xtx OC graphics card. As PSU I have chosen a beQuiet Pure Power 12M 1000W. Now I have the question whether the power supply is suitable for the graphics card. 

The power (1000W) should be sufficient but the graphics card needs 3x8Pin connectors. Reading the description of the PSU it should also fit the graphics card  "4 PCIe 6+2 connectors for overclocked high-end GPUs"  However, the power supply has only 2 connectors. The 4 PCIe 6+2 connectors result from the use of Y-cables. However, when I read the graphics card manual, the use of Y-cables is not recommendet. But for 3x8Pin i habe to use at least one of these cables. Should I return the PSU and choose another one or am I misinterpreting something?

Can someone help me because I am a bit confused right now....
