A Corsair HX1050, it's not fully modular but I guess you'll use the non-removable cables anyway. And if you can stretch just a bit I've seen Antec's great HCP1200 for 220 or so...

You need such a PSU to power what kind of rig? I think you can make do with a Corsair AX750 at most, unless you're running like quad SLI or something.

Seasonic's Platinum platform is amazing.
