Would the added 70 watts really benefit me right now for this build from the crossair 750w?

u dont rate a psu by watts u rate it by amps. also the corsair has a single 12v rail making it more stable.

and another thing is newer cards, like the 9800gx2, require 8pin pci-e connectors, ur psu only has 2 6pin connectors, the corsair 750 has 4 6+2 pins

but like i said u dont need it, ull just have to use adapters for ur card.

edit:
incase u were wondering here's the link:
