I'm thInking of buying the Ocz Zs 750w, my build consists of:

Asrock z77 extreme 4
2x4gb Kingston hyperx
1tb Samsung f3
Gigabyte R7870 2gb

I know it can supply enough for this build but...

firstly is it compatible with my components?

Will it give me room to expand say using crossfire in the future?

Can I get better for 60 pound?

Measured power consumption R7870

System in IDLE = 157W
System Wattage with GPU in FULL Stress = 274W
Difference (GPU load) = 117W
Add average IDLE wattage ~10W
Subjective obtained GPU power consumption = ~ 127 Watts

Radeon HD 7800Radeon HD 7870 - On your average system the cards require you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit as minimum and 700 Watt if you go with two cards in Crossfire mode. Yes you'll be fine
