New Build : No video output w/ GPU installed [SOLVED]

**Update, this morning I woke up at 4am and decided to start trouble shooting. I went and made sure everything was seated properly including the 24pin and the 4pin, then I went through and checked to make sure the GPU and RAM were seated. I then went and removed the SSD plug from the PSU, plugged the GPU where the SSD was and SSD where GPU was... On a whim, fired it up and voila! **

Please be easy on me, this is my first ever custom PC build and I'm kinda bummed... Everything is plugged in, GPU is seated properly and hooked up via the PCI-E and GPU supplied 6 pin to two split 4 pins connector to the PSU. When I have the GPU installed, I get NO video output from both on board video and the GPU. If I disconnect and remove the GPU I have video output using onboard video... Any ideas?
Below are the specs...

Motherboard : MSI B150I Pro Gaming AC
CPU : Intel i5 - 6500 3.2ghz
GPU : PNY GeForce GTX 1060 6gb
PSU : Corsair CX850M
RAM : GSkill Aegis 16gb (1 stick)

The GPU powers on and the fans spin fine...

Edit 1 ; it appears the two white 4 pin plugs may possibly be "molex" plugs? None of my PSU cables have 6 pin... could this be the issue? Plug in question is linked below.

    plug in the 6Pin PCI-E plug from your power supply (6+2 splitable to one 6Pin PCI-E plug) into the graphics card.
    Don´t use the adapter, your power supply is providing the power through the PCI-E cables which were included in the packaging of it.

    Unfortunately the PCI-e cables were not included in the packaging of the PSU, therefore I am using the provided adapter from the GPU.
  3. Well, that´s a problem. Why wasn´t it included? Did you buy it used and cheap ?

    Anyway, it will work like you connected it, but for future upgrading, you should complain about the missing cables.
