Yes, all modern power supplies are compatible. There are no any special requrements for p8z77-m

Not only is it compatible, but it's an excellent choice.    A modular supply allows you to make the interior of the case much neater, as you only need to install the wires you actually need.

Note that you have to connect both the ATX power connection AND the 8-pin auxiliary CPU power connection -- the tx650M provides this with a 4+4 connector (designed so it can be split for motherboards that only have a 4-pin aux CPU power connection).    If the two halves aren't already connected, you need to push them together before you plug it in.
