MOBO + PSU Questions

Setting up a new rig, I would honestly love some feedback this is my first build, for Video and music production as well as heavy gaming. Not sure about what monitors to get that would take advantage of the hardware /software I want to use, any recommendations? Preferably two monitors, on the wider side.
 
 
Now my question is right now there is a compatibility issue and it says "additional EPS power connector is needed" Now the case I was looking at comes with the PSU , and that's where i received the notice. Should I ditch this case and get a different power supply and case? or is this something I can work around?
 
on reddit someone told me "Your motherboard has two 8 pin eps inputs but your power supply only has one output. You can buy PCIe to EPS adapters, for example https://www.amazon.com/6-Pin-Express-Detachable-Female-Sleeves/dp/B01MRIFP2D/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_tr_t_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=2G8GDFK6QQENKG3XH5GR Since your build only consumes 328W, you should be fine with that power supply. You may not even need that extra 8 pin cable unless you are running multiple m.2 drives plus multiple GPUs, but better safe than sorry."
Is this a good solution? i've heard that, the RTX cards use more then one PCIe power cable? this would not leave space for an adapter.
 
What should my end game be here? Get the PSU and cable and not really worry?? or get a different PSU?? the MOBO and CPU have already been purchased

You could do 2x 1440p monitors, 2x 1080p monitors, or 1x 1080p and 1x 1440p.

 

As for your PSU dilemma, you could look at price comparisons between a different case and separate PSU. And if you're that worried about it, you could just grab a $60 case and get a 650/550W fully modular PSU.

So the EPS adapter thing isn't true ? Their is no work around? I like this case and it comes with the free PSU, I guess that's why I'm trying to fight for it and see what work arounds are possible

I'd look up to see how many EPS connectors that CPU needs, and how many PCIe power connectors that particular 2070 needs. If it all matches up ok, you'd be good to go. And if nothing else, you could return the case+PSU and get an alternate combo.
