With those specs 700W is completely over the top.

A 550W great quality PSU will be enough. Corsair TXM models are really solid... they are better than both PSUs you listed.

There's also a deal on a 750W Corsair TXM... it's only £ 15 pounds more which makes it a really great deal, even though it's overkill for your system.

Yes it's a DC-DC unit, a really nice one I might add... here's an in depth review made by @jonnyguru:

Here are your DC-DC converters highlighted in red on this photo of the internals
