Default Gigabyte 670 help

i've bought a gigabyte geforce 670 windforce edition graphicscard, and noticed that there is not two 6 pin power connectors, but one 6 pin, and one 8 pin. the problem is that my Corsair TX 750W modular PSU doesn't have a 8 pin PCI express connector, the only 8 pin connector it have is for the CPU. can i use the CPU one, or is there any other solution to the problem?

The TX750M should actually have 4x 6+2-pin PCIe connectors, the +2 will be dangling off the cable near the 6.
