As Ive never before built a PC, how helpful will a modular power supply be?

1.Will it make things less complicated

  1. If I did go modular, could somebody recommend a quality for my build; the options are confusing

  2. What do you think of PSU I have chosen so far? (it was recommended to me, without much explanation as to why)

Modular also helps if you have a PSU failure. You just unplug the power cables and replace the power supply. Then plug the power cords back in. A lot better than cutting out your cables and rerunning new ones. As mentioned about clutter, you only install the cables you are using.
