    Looking good,so just over 700 seems the least.

    I believe it looks great, has decent cooling, comes from a great manufacturer.

    Sure. Non-modular and low efficiency. Case without a proper cable management plus a non-modular PSU = evil. It will be messy, period. Plus there are more stable power supplies able to provide high efficiency under heavy loads. They're not bad choices but when you spend so much money on a PC, you may as well throw another £10-20 and get a higher quality PSU.
