that silverstone is a good PSU and will work well for you. another PSU option for you would be this seasonic which is also modular, has more 12v power (powers your CPU & GPU) 40a to to the silverstone's 34a, has a better warranty 5yr vs 1yr, is rated to 50c to the silverstone's 40c and best of all costs less. Not that that silverstone can't do the job but i would personally get the seasonic for the reasons above.
