My psu is within the requirements specified by evga so I'm not worried about it. As far as heat goes, I'm very impressed with my newly built P182's ability to keep temperatures down, my CPU tends to idle at ~24 degrees, with the mobo around 37 (35 cpu, 40 mobo under load). I probably could have bought a stock GTX 260 and done the overclocking myself, but I don't have much experience oc'ing video cards, and for an extra $50 I thought I'd avoid the hassle and have it done by the factory.
