Here are my two suggestions(if you're buying from newegg):
Kingwin Lazer Platinum 650W @ 136$(after promo code), literally the best unit on the market at that output range, can function as a 750W+ Gold unit but you'll rarely see loads beyond ~500W, the promotion expires in a couple of days so you'll need to be swift about it.
Rosewill Capstone 650W @ 100$, a toned down version of the Lazer Platinum linked above, excellent high end unit at a very good price, not modular though.

I second this post, 650 watts is plenty for the system and the mentioned units would be excellent for it.

A little headroom doesn't hurt IMO. While OP has a dead CPU platform, those extra 100 Watts shall be handy if he upgrades his GTX460s or uses the PSU for another higher end build.

Also, his old PSU was a 750 Watt....

Thanks for all the comments all, I ending up going with a AX850 Gold (nib) that a fellow OCN member offered to me at a price I could not refuse....
I feel this is the best route to go since I do plan on retiring the 460's and stepping up to the 6xx serie cards when released

You went a great route man. The HX series along with the AX series are some tough PSU's.

Not to mention when you retire those 460's you'll be able to SLI / CFX any set of cards that you'll like with the headroom to overclock them to the max. thumb.gif

I'm waiting on the price on them to drop though.

I see the Corsair marketing department is hard at work... take a break people, they're not paying enough wink.gif

Dat brand name.

Ah well, it's not like guys overpaying for HX/AX series units is really a big deal, and it looks like the OP hopefully got in on a nice transaction there, so maybe it was the best deal for that situation.

Yeah, very good unit, hopefully he got a good deal on it.

Still, can't help but notice the utter sodomy of logic and common sense in the posts above... makes you wonder, if they had AIDS would they spam every thread on random medical forums with this:(?)
