Which PSU to get

So here my build

Intel i5 3570k
MSI GTX 670
MSI Mpower Z77 Motherboard
SSD
Hard Drive
some fans

Would this be good enough

Problem I have with that PSU is that I want it mounted so fan is in taking air from under the case if I did this the sticker would be wrong way up so I don't think it not suitable to be upside down.

    Hi - Outstanding PSU, more than you need, realhardtech suggests 500w.
    That's not a problem if you want to spend the money. No issue bottom
    mounting it with fan facing up. But that fan is really for the PSU itself
    and not a case fan. Also that fan only runs when the PSU needs it,
    which isn't a lot. The fan is off(quieter) much of the time with that PSU.

    Sounds like you need to get 1 or 2 case fans.

    Yes what I mean I want a PSU where the fan of the PSU is facing downwards so it sucks air from under the case and exhaust out the back. Like modern cases, problem is the sticker will be upside down. Does this show that PSU is not meant to be used like that?
