Default Antec Gold Mod 750W PSU, thoughts?

Newegg.com - High Current Pro HCP-750 750W TX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.92 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

So the thing about black friday and various other promotions is that you only put things on sale that they want to move and make provisions for more product that they want to sell. So this seems like a good deal, and it has great reviews, but I'm wondering if anyone has purchased an Antec PSU and if you think they are worth getting, or should I just hold out for this one:

Newegg.com - SeaSonic Platinum Platinum-860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Keep in mind, I'm looking at the fact that this will save me over a hundred bucks, but only if I have to take a minimal hit on other stats. My biggest thing is that this will be used for gaming, to power an HD7970, i7 3770k OCed, 32Gb RAM, 2HDs, an SSD, and a liquid cool loop (1 pump pushing through a total of 5 120rad space, and RAM GPU and CPU)

Usually I would spend a ton of time researching before posting, but obviously this ends tomorrow, so while I'm doing research I figured I'd also see if I get some bites on this post for good opinions. Thanks for helping me save some cash guys! (btw, I'm US, so if you post other options for some reason keep that in mind)

Edit:
Last thought, I plan on redoing all the sleeving so that I can give it a nice custom look that fits into the overall aesthetic theme of the case. So things like coloured wires showing, and all that, I'm not worried about because I'll be fixing that after I buy it anyway.
