Thoughts on best PSU for this build?

I ran this by in the build opinions and the only feedback I got on it was to go with a EVGA SuperNOVA P2 650W instead thought the rest seemed good. Now would 650w leave me head room for a good OC on everything and the option to go SLI with something in the future(or if somehow things went backwards with GPUs and wattage requirement increased)? <---ya that probably won't happen right? lol! Budgets around 120 but I'll flex not skimping here, would the EVGA be the best bang for the buck there? Do they actually degrade over time?(heard that ages ago) Should note for you the GPU, RAM, SSD & HDD have been bought and are in my current build but feel free to give thoughts on them.

The RMx unit is a perfectly fine unit, along with the EVGA G2/G3/P2 etc. If you want to go sli 1070s with the 7700k, a 650w unit would do the job fine.

The titanium model? Looks like they have them in gold, platinum or titanium..... Forgot about that brand which makes a lot of them anyways.
