Also, the price increase of a SB rig is way overexagerated. You don't need a $270 board. A mid range board will do just fine.
Everyone and their mom will recommend Corsair/Seasonic, but contrary to popular belief there exist other PSUs that are also very good and much cheaper. Look at the Rosewill Green line, Antec Earthwatts, NeoEco, or almost any other Antec line, and many others. Check out the recommended PSU thread
almost everything i mentioned will still be relevant, and i provided a gen3 board that's ready for ivy, and basically outlined what would be the best in november. you can't say there isn't a point, as he has an idea of what to look for and a general idea of what he should be able to get for his money when the time approaches/comes. the only reason i linked the corsair is because i've built with them and never had a problem, i can also recommend antec, but they don't have a 550w/650w that is fully modular afaik.
OP, really any corsair, antec, thermaltake, rosewill, seasonic, or sometimes silverstone PSU should be good. i would get the best priced modular one when the time comes, at around 500-700w.
