I was planning on getting the GPU that comes with the PSU, the XFX Double D HD-687A-ZDFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit. I feel it would be enough for my needs, what do you think?

Too much for the combo. You don't need 700w to drive that card and its not that good a psu. For example, this one is way better and a lot less and has more than enough power:

So you could buy that Seasonic and the same card for $43 less. And you could apply the money you save and get a faster/newer 7850:

Or if you think you will need more power in the future, any of these Antecs for less than what you're paying for that Cooler Master:
