IMO if you want to spend more money to get a "better" supply beyond what the Antec costs you should get one with modular cabling, because the actual model you choose has little impact beyond price point.(even aesthetically it will be hidden by the side panel even if you have a window) Chances are any good brand that you buy will run your system for a long time assuming it has enough amperage, you could probably be pushing your gear with a 450W supply made by a reputable manufacturer. The ones you are looking at will have headroom if you ever want to run multiple graphics cards in the future or something. Also might consider noise, but honestly the good ones should all run fairly quiet.

Okay how about these two? and if there not good enough then ill get the one you suggested before

Between those two the "Gamer Series" 750W rated supply is significantly better. It supplies a ridiculous 160A(a 7850 GPU can draw a maximum of less than 10A from the PSU) total on the 12V rail, and the other 10$ more expensive model offered a measly 94A on the 12V rail. You can see these stats for yourself under the "Specifications" tab, or in the pictures of the sticker on the side of the PSU. Both of these are extreme overkill for your setup(unless you do secretly have plans for so many GPUs)

Like I was saying a 40-50$ model would probably work for your setup if you don't have big plans to make a super expensive system later. Lastly if you are determined to go expensive that 750W you just listed seems to be the best deal, 160A for 110$ is the cheapest price per amp yet listed in this thread.(even better than the cheaper antec which had 76A at 80$)

Edit: I just learned a bit about why the wattage ratings matter. The power supply will(can) be limited to supplying the number of watts listed, even if the amperage available would indicate that it could support even more wattage than listed. So the 850 watt supply that is more expensive with less amperage could still theoretically supply more components with power at once. Both supplies have more than enough amperage to feed the number of watts they are rated for and more.(a lot more in the 750W supplies case)

So the amperage is not the be-all-end-all equation to choosing your supply like I thought previously. The fact is that many cheap supplies do not have enough amperage to actually produce the wattage they are rated for, so in that respect amperage ratings are still very important. It does need to have enough hardware to actually supply the wattage it is rated for, but it seems like all of the supplies listed in this entire thread(even the rosewill) have enough amperage to supply their rated wattage. So I don't think that's going to help make your decision any easier, but at least now you know it matters even less which models you choose.(beyond warranty and customer support)

have a look at these, ive used them before and they have a very nice color to them, dont require any kind of extra hardware, just straight plug into molex, and can be strung together (somehow) didnt look into that part of them

skip to around 19 minutes for the red leds

I hope you realize that all of those are 80+ or 80+ bronze certified when the Rosewill capstone 750w is 80+ gold and is the same price. The 80+ gold versions of the other psus listed are:
Antec High Current Pro HCP-750 750W
CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX750
The Rosewill one has the same performance as these the only difference is the fan and less connectors but it's a lot cheaper. This is the one I recommended in the beginning and I stand by it. Rosewill psus are really nice and are at reasonable costs.

He said they look dark orange and thats what im afraid of frown.gif. I see alot of people by red led or cathodes and they end up looking orange and thats exactly what I don't want to happen.

Once again rosewill it is XD I updated the original post a few mins ago before you posted this and I put the rosewill power supply back instead thumb.gif No more changing the power supply the rosewill is final lol

no they look amazing in a black case, his was white, combine red lights on a white case and it will look pinkish orange with almost any light, ive used them on a friends HafX case and they look very red, and without the converter box that cold cathode needs which is annoying to hide
