Default Request: Modular PSU Recommendations

Hi, just finalizing the last bits while NCIX processes the other parts of my order - price matching takes some time.

I am looking for a PSU with modular cables and am always looking for other opinions. Current projected hardware setup and goals:

Processor: E6600 (BX80557E6600)
RAM: OCZ NVIDIA SLI Ready XTC PC2-8500 2GB 2X1GB DDR2-1066(OCZ2N1066SR2GK)
Mainboard: EVGA nForce 680i SLI 775 A1 Version (122-CK-NF68-A1)
Video: EVGA nVidia 8800 GTX (768-P2-N831-AR)

Shooting for a 3.4 and later higher E6600 overclock so scalability is important. Unlikely to play with the video card although I may wish to duplicate the pre-overclocked cards EVGA offers up in the future. RAM will likely be downclocked although I doubt it has a significant effect on the potency of the power supply needed.

From what I've read, the wattage is less important than the stability of the voltage of the device. I've always had a good experience with Enermax and I've read that OCZ produces decent supplies as well (but they generally don't have modular cabling). I'm currently working on the assumption that 700 watts is good for my goals.

Thanks for your wisdom. If you could explain the reasoning behind your suggestions that would be helpful as well!
