1) a 750watt psu will be fine such as a corsair 750 ax
2)if you want to save 10 quid get the 2500k but the 357ok is about 10% faster(i'd just get the 3570k)
3)yes but dont get a ram cooler waste of money as they dont get hot enough
4)looks like a good gaming pc all good quality,
5) you might want a bigger ssd 128gb id recomend
6)i have the 3570k and it runs hot but its designed to and the temps depend on the specific chip, but with a h100 you can overclock fine
7)it'll be fine
