All recent PSUs have a split 20+4 pin for the 24 pin cable to maximize compatibility.

Your best bet is to put in place your motherboard in a parts list with your GPU and see what PSU come up as they will have went through the compatibility screening.

You should be able to buy a 24 pin to 18 pin cable though. This should allow you to use a modern PSU without being stuck with the 20+4 pin cable.

The psu I have is a 750 super nova it has a 18 pin + 6 pin to be plugged into it. then it goes into a 24 pin plug. I would need to buy a new psu I guess then get a 24 pin to 18 pin. unless there is a cable 18 pin to 18 pin or 18pin +6 pin to 18 pin.

You can buy an adapter liek this one (not necessarily recommend just an example).
