8 pin gpu cable for G20CB

So, I bought a new gpu for my G20CB but I need a new 8 to 8 pin power cable for it, as I have only a 6 to 6 pin cable and that's not enough to power it. Does it need to be a specific cable? If so, where can I buy one?

I bought an 8 pin to 8 pin from Ebay. Mine arrived after about a week. But apparently a lot of people are selling all kinds of items for this machine.

This link should show some results for the specific cable. ^^ It is a bit tricky to plug it in though, I had to remove the 6-pin cable from the pc completely in order to get the cable in and the gpu seated correctly. ^^

Also found this one just in case. Haven't bought from it, but seem to a pretty good place too.

Thank you very much for the suggestions dude, I will go for the first link as the second one seems to be out of stock.

Ok, I finally got the cable and I installed the new graphics card. I can confirm it works, I really recommend the seller on the first link.

I think so. OpenHardwareMonitor shows 127 W of GPU power consumption under full load. It is a GTX 1660 Super which is rated at 125 W so it should be working as intended. Not sure about more demanding graphics cards tho.
