one thing i really didnt like on it , was it had a non modular 4+4 AND 8 pin motherboard PSU hook ups.

I dont need both, especially at 750W.
The description in the xfx PRO 850W model states its a Semi-Modular, I guess every bit helps.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817207017

2. XFX PRO850W XXX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817207017

Both are new and are also 850W.

any help would make my decision a lot easier thanks.

My specs:
- core i7 2600k
- sapphire 6990
- five fan modded NZXT Apollo case
- two Western Digital VelociRaptor 450GB 10000 RPM 6.0Gb/s
- One HITACHI Deskstar 2TB
- Crucial Ballistix Tracer 4GB with blue leds
- ZALMAN CNPS11X
Corsair AX1200, once bough never need to buy new one.

Quad-Fire will push that resolution in just about any game. It really depends on what you're playing.

Corsair's TX v2 units are Seasonic made, the OEM Name for them is SS-***AT where *** is the wattage.

If you're gonna get the other HD6990, then get it. There's not a single unit at that price point that's better than it.
