I'm looking to upgrade my build with a new card. Here's what I have currently:
https://pcpartpicker.com/user/evanater91/builds/#view=vdzNnQ

I'm eyeballing this 3070: https://www.adorama.com/PNG30708TFXB.html?sterm=1tLRKzRRzxyOU9WwUx0Mo3chUkE1YbRxwQI3Ts0&utm_source=rflaid912925
(but my mind isn't made up, I'm open to advice and I'm thinking I'll wait a while and see what the market does)

Here's my question: this card requires Two 8-Pins, my PSU has only 1 x EPS 8-pin. But pc part picker says they're compatible. Am I missing something?

"Am I missing something?"
Yes, EPS cable is for the CPU. Your power supply has two (6+2) 8-pin PCIe cables needed for the GPU.

EDIT: Didn't notice it was already answered...oops.
