Antec Gold Mod 750W PSU, thoughts?

So the thing about black friday and various other promotions is that you only put things on sale that they want to move and make provisions for more product that they want to sell. So this seems like a good deal, and it has great reviews, but I'm wondering if anyone has purchased an Antec PSU and if you think they are worth getting, or should I just hold out for this one:

Keep in mind, I'm looking at the fact that this will save me over a hundred bucks, but only if I have to take a minimal hit on other stats. My biggest thing is that this will be used for gaming, to power an HD7970, i7 3770k OCed, 32Gb RAM, 2HDs, an SSD, and a liquid cool loop (1 pump pushing through a total of 5 120rad space, and RAM GPU and CPU)
Usually I would spend a ton of time researching before posting, but obviously this ends tomorrow, so while I'm doing research I figured I'd also see if I get some bites on this post for good opinions. Thanks for helping me save some cash guys! (btw, I'm US, so if you post other options for some reason keep that in mind)
Last thought, I plan on redoing all the sleeving so that I can give it a nice custom look that fits into the overall aesthetic theme of the case. So things like coloured wires showing, and all that, I'm not worried about because I'll be fixing that after I buy it anyway.
So I tried editing the above post again to add this, but it kept giving me an error.
I also found this one, after all the black friday deals, it'll be 125USD

The HCP units are Delta, and realistically very well built so, there is no issue with that unit whatsoever.
Get whichever one saves you the most.
So, the HCG series is a no brainer if you can get it on sale. Not saying the other ones are bad either, you have choosen great units there to pick from.

I own it, love it, zero problems (other than not enough juice for an OC trifire rig).
Having some headroom is a good thing imo.
