Those seems like some good options for a sub-100 deal power supply Soultribunal.
But you are right, adding an extra 25 can get me an extra 50 - 100W. Well I guess that my best hope is when I do buy a power supply there will be a sale on like 750 W power supply. :D

BTW, does anyone know if modular PSU has any advantage other than its cleaner cable managements? (just a thought, I don't think I can get a mod PSU for that price range)

You could get a Silverstone PSU thats fully modular for the 125 range or so (they had some nice sales on for PSU's, hopefully they do in the future).

The only real advantage is cable management, but that can sometimes make all the differnece in tight cases.

THe extra never hurts. The TX750 was on sale for like 90 last time, might be one to watch out for.

If you can catch a Corsair 750TX for under $100, you'd be in good shape. I run the first version; it's a good unit and it ran two overclocked (very powerhungry) 470's in SLI with aplomb.

I never heard of the Silverstone brand for PSU, so I don't know how their reputation is.

And gingerbee, you're vouching for Cooler Master that their PSU are pretty reputable and dependable?

The coolermaster Units I avoid, they are still decent but of a lower standard.
Silverstone I will vouch for 100%. The OEM for the striders is Enhance, and is very very good.
I've got 3 currently at 2 years old chugging away without fail plus another 5 for client builds out there without issue or having the PSU kill hardware off in the computer.

Very solid,

I'll look into some Silverstone PSU as some of them doesnt seem to bad for price/Watts ratio.

Well, as far as the sound goes, I'm trying to make it as quite as possible.
