Can I connect this SATA Wire to a connector that will accept 6pin-8pin?

Hello, I was doing a discovery in my PSU and it didn't have a 6pin-8pin for my card, I wondered I found this new cord called a SATA wire coming from PSU and show to be pointing toward my graphics card slot I was wondering can I have a 15 pin connector and connect that to a 6pin for my graphics card and it will still work correctly? I check the SATA wire and it's not connected to anything and it has 15 pins so could I buy this to connect to my card? Here is my specs/ pictures.
Also if you could tell me a way to check my pc wattage that be great.

    never use adapters

    get a 1050 ti that does not require a 6-pin, simple

  2. Adapters are fine IF used correctly. This is not one of those times.

    yes that msi one does not need a 6-pin


    now it comes down to you having sufficient wattage on the power supply to run it
