Need PSU advice for new build

I am planning on building a Hackintosh to replace my 4+ year old iMac.

I am a professional photographer that uses mostly Adobe Lightroom for photo editing. Occasionally I will use Photoshop.

I am considering this build:

Lightroom does not utilize the GPU so I can get away with out having a graphics card to start. Eventually I want to do some gaming and video editing so I will add a GPU down the road.

To start there is not a great need for a lot of power or overclocking. Considering future expandability what size power supply should I consider and what model do you recommend? I am trying to keep the budget down so I am looking for a good value in a modular PSU.

Thank you.

Under $100 would be nice unless it's all crap under that price.

Its technically brand new, iirc its a rebrand seasonic psu. Its on par with the g2 series iirc which is evga best psu besides the p2 and t2.
