I'm debating between the TX650 and the HX650. I understand the main difference is that one is modular (more prefferred) and the other is not. What does it mean that it is modular and does it make that much of a difference?
A modular PSU means that you only have to plug in the cables that you need to use for your system.

Here's an HX650 and you can see on the sides that there are slots to plug in each additional cable.
On this TX650 all the cables must be attached. Modular PSUs are better when it comes to cable management because you don't have any unused power cables lying in the case.

Lian Li cases have EXCELLENT build quality. I have one myself and it is very solid and the tool less design makes it a breeze to add additional components and take existing ones out

No. Don't get EITHER of those PSU's,
I am sure you could also get away with a less powerful PSU

Yes, Sandy bridge is great. With that m4a89td pro board though, It's bulldozer ready for when that comes out. (AMD's next cpu) Will be out soon (late june at the earliest I think)
