I don't know about "overkill," I personally think it would be a good choice, particularly if you've got a 1080p monitor.
It will be more overboard to go with a 750 watt processor than it will to go with a 560 gtx.
In fact with a 2500k overclocked to 4.5 ghz, and a 560 gtx, 2 sticks of memory, and other regular stuff you'll only be using about 400 watts at max load, so you'd really only be reccomended ~500w.
Unless you plan on going SLI down the road or adding 3 more spinning HD's (which is silly, because SLI has its own microstutter problems), you might need a bigger psu, but unless you're getting an SLI board and then planning on ignoring SSD's in the future, you REALLY wont need a bigger PSU.
Also remember that going forward things tend to go down in power usage with fabs going smaller and smaller.
Regardless of psu size, you should go with a trusted brand. Antec Earthwatts, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, OCZ etc.
