Which means its like buying a car based on color you have no idea what you buy unless you look into it

Then comes the rebrands which is one unit sold as another unit under another name which can get confusing

All in all the PSU and the PSU market is the most complex and complicated part of the PC and you need to really be carefull there

Lucky you ended up on one of the only two forums where we know whats going on

Thank you so much, you're very kind.
I'm going to take a harder look at the PSU's now, and for sure take a look at you recommendations (550W) XFX Core Edition, OCZ ZS and ZT.

I want a really tidy system - is modular the way to go for this, or does it really make any difference?
Additionally, I'm hoping to get some green cabling in (such as the Corsair Generation 2 Sleeved cables in green), is it possible to use these from a PSU rather than the provided stock (black)? - if modular obviously.

There are ups an downs with both modular and non modular

Depens on what you want

I just want enough cables to power the GPU, PCU, MB and a couple of HD's. No optical and nothing exceptionally fancy.

It will need to be able to OC a 4770K with a Corsair H110 and run a single (for now) GTX780.

But I don't want loose ends hanging about.

p.s. your right, the Corsair don't stack up next to the XFX's line-up. They look so good!

If your case has ample room for cable management, you can probably save some money and get a non-modular PSU.

If your case has very little space for cable management (like my NZXT Vulcan), you should probably go modular.

Newegg is running some promotions here in the states:

Maybe you can try to get some UK retailers to price match?
