Default PSU upgrade

So I am building a computer for my parents, I was thinking of giving them my actual PSU (Mushkin modular 580 Watt sli certified). This implies that i purchase a better PSU for my computer. I am planning on getting another video card to CFX with my 3850 ICE3Q turbo, plus my new DFI 790FX M2Rs allowed for a nice OC of my CPU, wich now draws more power. I have absolutely fallen in love with modular PSUs. So I was thinking of going with a 650 watt

I looks like this particular Corsair model HX620 is popular. Plus it is the model used by my good friend Ebdoradz,wich purchases only good products. So It seems that One will find a home in my CM690 case.

If you want a good review of the Corsair HX620 PSU take a look to this link : Corsair HX620W Power Supply Review | Hardware Secrets.
The overcurrent and overpower protection doesn't really work (like many PSU) and it is a bit expensive (like most modular PSU) but it is a really good PSU anyway.
