or the non-modular version:

Go modular. It's worth the premium to not have cables sitting there. And your case has fantastic cable magagement.

750W is PERFECT for that system.

I'm looking at doing a similar upgrade.... my cpu is Q6600 and P5Q P45 mobo... is it possible to get $250+ for this?

My PSU is a modular 520w... if I had a lower power video card (e.g. HD Radeon 6670) or the integrated graphics (would have to be Z68 mobo), is it enough for now?

I agree, OP, go for a modular PSU... you will thank yourself later.

Is it worth it to upgrade to the 850W? Or is that not needed?

It depends on what you plan on doing in the future mate.

If you're sticking with a single GPU then yeah 750W is plenty. If you can see a point in the future where'd you like to go nuts and build a total beast of jizztastic proportions, then maybe consider something bigger.

IMHO, power supplies are one of the few things you can consider a true investment and can carry across multiple builds. I bought my HX850W for that exact reason - I want to use it for as long as possible!

TL;DR - if you're gonna stick with this new build for as long as you did with your current one, go a 750W . Happy shopping/building dude!

Exactly! never skimp if you can get away with it. If you look hard enough you can find great deals. I plan to take my newest PSU out and transfer as needed:

Take a loook. Backlit modular is just sexy as Kingwin jsut lowered prices.
