750W cheaper than 650W?

I think this is weird. I found Corsair RMx 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply cheaper than its 650W one. The 750W is $80 and 650W is $90. Shall I go with the 750W even if it's a overkill for my system? Below is my part list. I may think upgrade my system in the future. Can anyone give me any advice? Thanks.

The 750 watt version is probably on sale or there's some deal going on. If the 750 watt version is cheaper, that's what I'd go for.
