Hello, I'm building a computer and was wondering about the power supply -- I've done a lot of research myself, I just want some other answers...Here are my specs:

NZXT Phantom 410 Full Tower
Intel DZ68DB Motherboard LGA 1155
Intel core i7 2600
AMD Radeon HD 6870
Seagate Barracuda 1TB HDD
Crucial 64GB SSD
Kingston 8gb Hyper-X Blu 1333Mhz
Currently I have a OCZ ModXStream 700w psu
My question is that a good psu for the specs? If I forgot anything (which I probably did) just ask. Will it work with my gpu and everything else?

If the build is for gaming buy i5 2500k. Your PSU is good for the build.

Best solution

It should be enough, though if you plan on crossfiring in the future, I would recommend an 800w (750 if you dont like to overkill). Also, I agree with sosofm, The i5 2500k or the 2550k (<--- ten bucks more) would be the ideal choice for gaming, as it/they is unlocked, and during games seems to be much more stable.
