Give me some recommendation of cheap and reliable MODULAR PSU!
 
hi, as the title said :ph34r:, i am sick and tire of the sonota III, it is definitely not the best case for someone that likes to open there case a lot :angry2:. And with my future upgrades the sonota is going to have to go :blarg:, there have been way too much blood and sweat spill already with this case :angry2:.

So for now i will get a modular psu first, the ones i have consider and look at are the OCZ modxstrem pro for $65 <-- seems like the best bang for the $$, but from what S_G said on the ncix forums, the OCZ's MOD PSU cables are too short for a decent mid size case :shok:

The other PSU that i had look at was the AntecNEO power 550 for $85, i current have the EA500W and its really quite i like it :haha:

I need some recommendation of good and cheap reliable modular psu. around $80-90ish and have at least 550 watt.

Future upgrades: CM690, 9800GTX+, and a quad core and 4-6 HDDs
Sig is rig

Thanks for reading.

The modxstream pro's are good I have the 600w version, the cables are long enough to reach everywhere but if you're looking to route them around the back then i'd look elsewhere. I have the apevia x-plorer for a case and I couldn't even route them around that.

Unfortunately, cheap and modular are rarely in the same sentance. Yes, the Corsairs are awesome PSU's, but they're not cheap. With a CM690, which i have.. (with a 9800GTX+ in it)...you can run most of the wires behind the mobo-tray, and out of sight.. as the PSU is bottom mounted. :thumb: The HX series(Corsair-modular), have jumped in price since the summer, but the non-modular models(VX550<-mine,TX650/750) are still decently-priced and are great PSUs as well.

Antec makes modular PSU. I have the 650 and its been very good. Check the reviews section of the site, lots of reviews in there. That is how I decided to pick the Antec for my needs.
