Power supply does not have 2x PCIe connections

So I am in the process of building this machine: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/mDZi and just got all the pieces today. When looking at the graphics card installation instructions it says to use 2x 6pin PCIe cables to provide power and to not use a splitter but to use two separate cables. But when I look at what I have on that power supply it only came with a single PCIe cable although that cable does have a second connector that I can attach to another device.

If I just plug both plugs from the single cable into the graphics card will this be an issue?

Sorry for the seemingly basic question but I have been out of the PC game for awhile and graphics cards were not this complicated when I was doing my own builds 15 years ago.

Thanks guys!

I think that psu comes with a 6+2 and 6 pci-e connector. Just use both even if they look like they're on the same cable it'll work just fine.
