I'm sure you want modular,I would say the Corsair HX620, or if you want more juice and don't mind non-modular, ST75ZF or ST85ZF, would allow more
options in your future
check out

Welcome to GURUland

You might have to do some modding to get either one of those Silverstones in that case, but the Corsair will be fine

With modular, you only use the cables that you need, with non-modular, you have to become handy with zipties and hideing cables behind your motherboard, because your stuck with having all of them in your case, longer cables mean more to hide, but with your case, you should have plenty of room

IMAO I would think you would be fine with that setup, as long as you don't start adding more fans, drives, lights, cigarette lighters,USB probes,alarm systems, fan controllers, but then again, I've seen more, run on less
