yeah, definitely good enough for the specs on your sig.
It looks like a pretty good psu, I wouldn't mind having one of those powering my pc.

They look awesome, but their a low build quality. Very cheaply built for what you pay.

Not anymore they aren't. Ultra changed their OEM so it would have a higher build quality. Only the first generations of X-connects were plagued with such problems. Now Ultra is one of the best psu manufacturers on the market.
