The PSU only has 1 8-pin CPU connector, meaning one will have to be empty. This shouldn't be a problem, as the PSU is good quality and should provide enough power for the CPU.
However, if you do want to have both connectors, it would be worth either buying an extra one for the Seasonic, or getting a PSU that comes with both like https://pcpartpicker.com/product/6p8H99/evga-power-supply-220p20650x1

Any thought on going R9?

Great shout, I'll take another look at the PSU. I've not seen/read anything to suggest that both do need to be used, but it's worth an extra check. Any issues apart from the PSU?

Will be for gaming, monitor is a separate budget, so I'll look at that once I've decided on the build
Knowing the resolution and refresh rate is helpful as it gives some insight as to whether the build should go slightly more towards GPU or slightly more towards CPU. There are no problems with the build though, and I'd say it is great as it is.

Can argue towards either way, the colour sticker wasn't one of the pros/cons
Not really any pros for going intel anymore. AMD has caught them in single core and you get 4 more for the same price now along with using less power, PCIE 4.0 etc and if you get an X570 now you’ll be able to upgrade later on. Intel on the other hand doesn’t seem to know what they’re doing, when they eventually get 10nm out of the door you’ll need a new board. Only reason to go intel now is adobe premiere.
