PSU Overkill?

I have a relatively low powered unit but locally in a small computer shop the only super deal is the x760. will that use more power than lets say a 400w power supply even though my rig probably won't be using half the available power?

Re: Best/largest CPU cooler for ASUS P8Z68-V i2500k P183

out of those two which one is better or is it a wash? also is it worth getting the larger ones? I plan to get a fanless 5770 so there will be decent amount of heat in case. i will have case fans but maybe getting a larger one is better for me but i will definitely keep those two in mind
