Compatibility with my custom build questions

I have put together a custom build for a hackintosh I am planning to build. My questions are:
1. Are all my components compatible?
2. The power supply doesnt say MicroATX but I think my setup is so will that power supply not work? if not, can someone direct to a powersupply that would work with setup at around the same price? Please Note: I do plan on adding a GPU upgrade in next couple years so I want a power supply that is at least 700 watts to handle future upgrades.
3. For the current hardware I'm putting in, will the case's fans be sufficient in keeping my setup cool or should I buy another fan(I read something about my graphics card having lower temperatures??)
4. Please tell me if I have any other compatibility issues

I'm planning on buying a better graphics card in the future. The 640 is just a starter card and I want my PSU to be able to handle future upgrades
Also because the psu says 700watts, does that mean it is always using that much power or does it use whatever the computer needs and thats it?
and what about the fans in the case? are they sufficient for my current hardware configuration or do I need another fan if I game with 640?

Oh okay and it doesnt stay at 750w they idle down and add more when the comp needs it.My computer idels at say 40 watts but under a gaming load it maxes out at like 250w but a 750w will power any video card you wanna get :)  And if you game on a 640 you wont be able to max games out they will be playable but at a much lower res or detail. :)

What about the heat? Are the fans in the computer case sufficient for my current configuration or do I need to buy another fan?
