EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti "Please connect the PCI Express Power Cable to this graphics card"

I have a Kentek ATX 600W PSU, and for the life of me, cannot find the 6-pin connector to connect for the PCIe power cable to plug into the EVGA-brand GeForce GTX 750 Ti that a friend handed off to me. I would like to see if I can get this thing running, but am currently at a standstill. Any help would be appreciated. I've run over the various cables coming out of the PSU, and I see several IDE Power connectors, a couple connections on the mobo for power (12-pin ATX and P4 ATX) and CPU Fan power, but no 6-pin PCIe connector.

Am I missing something? Is there someway I can bypass this (I have seen several threads detailing the idea that the GeForce GTX Ti does not necessarily need the 6-pin cable, but not sure how to go about engaging this option)?

    there are versions of the gtx 750 ti that do not need additional power

    Looking at the price, the wattage and the connections for that power supply, replace it and quickly.

    It has 22 amps on the 12 volt rail, that is really only about a 300 watt power supply. Any maker that cheats that much to get a 600 watt power label on their product should be not allowed to be in business.

    This is a good quality 550 watt power supply, look at the amp rating on 12 volt rail https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16817151119 , it's +12V@45A. It's rated at 50 watts LESS but has more than double the amps on 12 volts.

    What you have there is a tin box filled with gun powder waiting to go off and blow up your parts.
