**Additional 8-pin power connector needed?**

I have put together a build with the Asus Strix ROG GTX 1060 and the Fractal Design Integra M 450W. PC part picker says that I need an additional PCI-Express 8-pin power connector. I have gone through the specifications of the power supply and it says that the PCI-E connector is 6+2 pin. Doesn't that mean that I can power this GPU correctly as the graphics card only needs 1x8 pin connector and the error message is incorrect?

Links of where I got my information from: Graphics Card: http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/nvidiageforcegraphicscards/nvidiagtx1060series/rogstrix-gtx1060-6g-gaming.html Power Supply: http://www.novatech.co.uk/products/components/fd-psu-in3b-450w.html

I would just avoid the integra since its a couple years old and just go with a Corsair CX450M https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/FQ648d/corsair-power-supply-cp9020101na or if budget allows it with a evga 550 G2 https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/product/qYTrxr/evga-power-supply-220g20550y1.

but to answer your actual question the integra has 6+2 PCI express so i think it should just work really and its a error from pcpartpicker.
