The recommendation for 2 gtx 760 is 700 watts or more. Im sure if you regulate your wattage you should be safe.

It's not safe.
According to http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_760_sl...
GTX 760 SLI can draw an average of 343 watts, while peaking at 449 watts. In other words, when your GPU is being pushed really hard, the CPU better stay around 50W. However, I think both of us know that is not possible unless you're using low power CPU, which will more than likely bottleneck the GTX 760 SLI.

I recommend SilverStone Strider Essential 700W.

Yes, it could go well over 490W if the applications require it.

no it's not safe at all, i guess the only reason your compoments are not damaged is because you're using a quality PSU, but it's not gonna resist for too long

Just curious, but doesn't that SilverStone one that you've just posted look like that one that I've suggested?...... o_O

I wouldn't go with Cougar, not a very good PSU brand.

I mean, are you looking for color? Cuz all PSU have standard dimensions to it, so there's no say in shape and sizes.

Here a thread of request for red LED PSU http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/309290-28-quality-cab...

Trust me on that it won't make the system ugly if you use a non-red PSU. PSU usually sits on the bottom where it's very hard to see. In addition, if you really want to, you can just paint the outside case of that PSU. It's just metal, so it's not going to damage anything as long as you don't spill the paint inside.

I still recommend the SilverStone that I've suggested earlier with the 80+ Bronze rating.
