    Which card?  Looking at the lineup of 3060Tis I see cards with 2-8 pin connections but nothing with 12.

    EVGA doesn't sell any cards that use Nvidia's 12 pin power connector. In fact no board partners do, it's only Nvidia founders edition cards that use the 12 pin connector. So if you bought it here, you don't need to worry about it. If you didn't buy it here (why are you asking here?) and you got a founder edition card from Nvidia it will come with the adapter in the box.

    Most modern PC PSUs have multiple cables for your graphics cards.

    It's best to use two separate cables with just the single connector going into the graphics card when possible. That said you can use two 8 pin off of one cable since as long as your PSU is running within specifications it shouldn't have any issues getting the power needed.

    Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.
