Seconded. Since you plan on getting a new computer soon, 750/850 might be your best bet. TX750/850 are good choices.

Just as an update, considering it's my brother's thread:
He ordered a Corsair HX750 after I had spoken with him in regards to it.
No doubt the TX750/850 would be more than sufficient, however as he is not completely computer hardware literate, he failed to mention that his case is rather small, uses ATM form factor, and with a TX PSU he would have had major airflow issues after installing as the motherboard tray doesn't have enough room behind it to tuck all those spare power cords neatly in.

Well, he should do just fine with that unit, although the body of the HX750 is slightly longer than the TX750, if memory serves me right. Hope he double-checked dimensions.

The HX750 is way more than he needs, and a bit of a waste of money in my opinion. It's an excellent PSU though, and he shouldn't have any problems with it.

He'll have the room for the PSU to fit, I had checked that for him.

And he plans on using this PSU in his next rig, so I can't see spending the extra little bit on a 750 to support a moreso load heavy system in the future.

Like 3.0 says, the TX750 is on sale right now for $ 99 after MIR. It's got 4x 6+2 connectors and plenty of power! :)
