Default Need suggestions on a modular PSU

Hey all, looking for a reasonably priced 100% modular PSU in the 300-500w range

Needs to have at least one 6-pin pci-e connector. and it needs to be 80plus certified OR better.

Any ideas?

OCZ ModXStream Pro 400W (ONLY the 400W model). It's not fully modular, but it's the best you're going to find in that wattage range.

The other models are crappy Sirfa units. The 400W model is made by CWT.

What do you consider reasonably priced, and how modular does it have to be (even ATX power, etc.)? How about the 520HX?

50-70 is reasonable. and some of the necessary connectors can be non-modular. But the idea is to have a psu that I can remove, and only detach the cables from the psu, and not the components.
