Default Modular choices for psu

I'm nearly ready to pull the trigger and buy a psu to power my next phase of upgrades My old pc had an Antec EA500 Earthwatts psu 500 wattsand it was a fantastic bang for the buck psu for my nearly 3 year old build a core 2 duo e6600 with 8800GT. It did its job very well, but now I'm working on replacing all internal parts except DVD burner, hard drives, and tower and swapping in a i5 and 5850. Good old power supply or not I think it will choke under the load.

I would prefer a new modular psu over non modular one but here are the ones I know of within my budget listed in preferred order.Antec True Power New 750W - TP-750,
Silverstone Strider+ 750W - ST75F-P
Thermaltake TR2 RX 750W - TRX-750M

Any of you guys have any recommendations? Do you think my list is in the right order, or are there any other psu's missing That I should be considering? I would even probably list the Silverstone one as number 1, but its brand new with no reviews, but interesting because of reputation and the fact it has only one 12v rail @ 60a

Corsair HX750... That's a good one, but I'm trying to stick to my budget (being cheap but not stupid with my choices) all the ones I have listed are all brand name units that are available here in Canada for $100 to 120. I have yet to spot the HX750 for less then $133.. and my cut off price for a psu is $120

Well, if thats the case, I would get the Silverstone strider based upon Reputation. I wouldn't trust TT anything as far as I could throw it, but Ive had some bad run-ins with TT.
