Hi guys, hope you are all staying safe out there. I just purchased a somewhat decent card for my PC as I am planning on playing some games. I haven't messed with hardware in over 15 years so I am way out of my league and was hoping someone could help out. My question is, am I able to install and run a AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT 8GB on a E93839 LA0531 motherboard? The video card needs an 8 pin power supply but I don'tsee one. I was reading an article that said I would better off buying a new PSU thas has an 8 pin connector, just wanted to make sure that is correct. Any help is appreciated, thank you.


Edit: Update, got the new PSU, worked perfect.

That doesn't look like it is a compatible machine. What is "E93839 LA0531"? Is that a Server workstation? Add full system specs. Also what exact graphics card model is it?

This is the motherboard, I got the tower pc from newegg refurbished....the card is AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT Mech 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0. I swapped out the PSU for a newer one that has the 8 pin connectors and its working great now.
