Hello. My card is Aorus 2080 Ti connected to Corsair 850RmX. My friend plugged card using 1pcie cable not 2 cables. 1 cable have 2x8pin connectors. Is this ok too?

This psu have 1 rail only?

Most quality PSUs in this range use single 12V rail designs. This way, the user does not need to worry about balancing load across multiple 12V rails. (Though individual cables and connectors still have their own tolerances.)

It's not ideal, but is fine if the cable is up-to-snuff.
