As long as you have a molex to 8-pin pci-e converter cable, you can use one of your 6-pin connectors and the 8-pin converter cable.

Just make sure your PSU has the recommended power requirements. Should be found in the gpu's documentation or on the box.

Recommended PSU should be minimum 500W good quality model.
