If you don't mind the colours, the XFX 850W performs and is basically the same as the HX850.

No, the XFX PSU is completely different from the HX850.

A Silverstone Olympia or Strider if you want modular.
Cheaper price tag than the Corsair and probably just as good.

While both are good, the XFX is a Seasonic unit, I believe, while the Corsair is a CWT unit.

My mistake then. However either way, the XFX is still a solid performer. It's not like the HX850 is the only top-notch modular 850W PSU out there, that was my main point.

I agree with that, but then again the Corsair's do have the best warranty out there. At least I'm pretty sure they are the only ones with a 7 year warranty. Not to mention they are good to deal with, I know when I needed an 8 pin PCI-E cable for my HX620, they sent me one with no questions or cost to me. I know that means a lot to me.
