The Corsair CMPSU-750TX 750W is my first choice. Second, the PC Power & Cooling S75QB 750W.

The other two I wouldn't even consider. The 'Strider' series is Silverstone's only mistake in the PSU market, and should simply be ignored (they're not *that* bad, but not very good either), while I'd never recommend anything OCZ whateverXStream. Most of these PSUs are based on an FSP platform that has a high ripple on the 12V rails at high loads.

The Corsair and PC P&C are very good PSUs though.

If you ever plan Tri-SLI, 1000W is an option indeed... but if you only have $150 or so, just get that Corsair 750W beast.

Thanks for the info! Well it looks like I'm going to pick up that Corsair 750TX. I've heard a lot of good things about Corsair PSU's. I was leaning towards that one in the first place, and with a deal like that it's hard to pass up! Thanks.
