Will this power supply suffice?

I am currently in the process of building a new computer. I fairly recently purchased a Thermaltake Litepower 700w power supply and a Nvidia MSI Gtx560. I did such, because my old card was dead and very old ... 9500gt... and my old supply could not hold it.

Now, I am looking to finish expanding upon my computer, so I am ordering in ... pretty much everything.

The current setup, I am looking to go with, is this...

Intel Core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I52500

All fans will be upgraded to a higher rpm speed....

And of course....

Now, the question is if the thermaltake can hold up against all of that. It is a drastic step up from my current setup... not even going to disgust you all with how weak my current rig is. So far it has been great, super quiet, never had any sort of issues with it or the card... but will be sufficient for all the new parts incoming?

Yes, it should. However TT is unfortunately not known for high quality PSUs. Your system will use some 400W absolute maximum.
