Yes, you should have no problems with the EVGA 750W.

Which one, the b1 or the b2? There is no such thing as too much wattage.

Your good then, the B1 is based on a platform from 2005 which is the one you want to avoid due there being no proper reviews of it out.

Yep. Pretty much the PSU will draw as much power as it needs. If the system requires 250W, it'll draw 250W as long as it's rated to handle 250W+

Example: You could have a 1600W PSU and have it only draw 250W.

But seeing the other W1-B1-G1 units it probably has cheap capacitors- it's best to go with the G2 B2 P2 series.

Agreed.

Your power efficiency will be **** [250/750 = 33% load, most psus have peak efficiency at 50%) but it'll work.

There'll be no tangible (real world) difference

It's a great unit, I use one. Silent, easy to work with, and looks good. Lots of extra cables and even velcro straps for cable management. Your efficiency will be crap at that load, but if you're gonna build up in the future it'll be a good choice.
