Component Incompatibilities?

Need a little help here folks as i'm a bit of a noob when it comes to this. I have just ordered some new parts to upgrade my current PC. I'm keeping some parts to reduce cost - Case, PSU, RAM and hard drive. When I put all the parts together it's saying - Potential Issues / Incompatibilities 1 additional EPS power connector is needed. What does this mean? All parts are due for delivery tomorrow so don't really want to send parts back. Is it really just a matter of buying an additional cable? And if so what is the cable actually for???
Current PC- Case - Corsair 750d
Mobo - Gigabyte ga Z170x gaming 7
CPU - intel i7 7700k 4.2Ghz
CPU cooler - Cooler Master hyper 212 evo
RAM - 16gb (2x8Gb) corsair vengance LPX DDR4 3000Mhz
GPU - Nvidia PNY 980ti 6Gb OC XLR8
PSU - Corsair RM750X
Storage - Samsung 850 evo 500GB

Any info would be great, thanks

yeah, I'll be upgrading the SSD pretty soon but the incompatibility issue is still there - "1 additional EPS power connector is needed." is the EPS cable to power the GPU? if so, then shouldn't it be fine if I'm only using the one graphics card?

The PSU you picked has both CPU power connections.
