I wanna get the ModXstream but it has only 2 PCI-E connectors and I wanna xfire Asus 6850s and for some reason the Asus 6850 requires two 6 pin connectors so in that respect the Antec is better but in another respect the ModXtreme is better because of it being modular.. I'm leaning toward the Asus though to be honest.

The max load on the PSU i'll be putting:

2 HDD + 1 SSD

2 Asus 6850s

1 I5-3570k

2-4 case fans

Yeah, i agree, future proof if i wanna get 2 better cards....even though it's not modular i think it'll be ok. Plus it ends up being 7 dollars more since promo code than the 600watt modxstream.... pulled the trigger lol thanks guys
