OK I have a dilemma I need a good dependable Modular psu. But here's the thing it has to be under $130.00.

This power supply should do unless you want a higher wattage.

All be honest with you. The first psu I bought was a antec earthwatt 650w and I got it doa so from there I've been scared of any antec psu. Then I got a corsair and it's the best thing I've ever bought. But I need a Modular even if I'm hiding the wires it just looks sloppy.

I just did a psu calculator from extreme.outervision and it showed my recommended to be 624w so do you think 750w is cutting it close. This is going on a i7 2600k (Hopefully OC) P67 mobo 16gb HOPEFULLY gtx 570 3 hdd 2 dvd burner 1 bluray burner 6 fans (4 120) (2 250) allot of random usb (5) plugins..

$109 after rebate, deal of the day. A top Seasonic unit in a different casing. The colors annoy me, but a top of the line PSU.

That 750HX is top of the line to. I use that particular PSU in my gaming rig.

Either one of those PSUs are actual 750 watt units, not some overrated POS. They both will drive a 2600K/570GTX without breathing hard.

EDIT: Ha, just read killerx525's post above. Great minds and all........................
