My thanks to Rockr69 for opinions based within the lines of my listed units I had, at the time, narrowed the choices to. Considering "Budget VS Performance", the Cooler Master was a great pick. After further research and BriSleep's input, I decided to spend the additional $30 and go for the BriSleep recommended PSU.

Why? Main reasons:

The additional watts will allow for growth in components if necessary.

Not only growth now, but also the scientific understanding I have gained regarding the "80+" ratings. Seeing as for an additional $30 I am not only gaining more wattage, but also a "Silver" rather then "Bronze", and in turn a higher % at half to full loads. Much thanks to BriSleep for the detailed explanation!

Thanks to Rockr69 for explanation of possible troubles with more then one rails. I checked to be sure the Corsair 750HX was a Single rail.

So thanks to everyone for the input! I feel very confident I made the best possible choice in my purchase & who doesn't love that feeling? Now just need to wait on shipping then install the part. Can't wait!

***EDIT*** I almost forgot to mention... This is my FIRST MODULAR PSU! lol so, you can imagine the anticipation.
You made a wise choice and will love the flexibility of having a modular unit. Congrats!

Thanks, you're input was very helpful. There's nothing worse then dumping $150 on something you regret later. Lately, I've been realizing how deep component details have gotten, and I have learned from history that research is the key.

Rep+ for both you, Rockr69 & BriSleep

Yeah, I was starting to wonder about that too! Nice rig, I like Nuclear symbols.

Rogue, no problem with keeping the OCZ, you're not going to pull that much power with what you're going to build.

Clee, you'll love that PSU, if you get the H50 cooler you'll find your rig is very quiet and yes you'll have lots of room to grow with it.

For everyone, one thing I forgot to mention, don't worry about your power bill when buying a PSU, if you buy say a 1200W PSU and you only have 320W worth of equipment in your case, you only draw the power you use, if it's not pulled by the components the PSU doesn't produce it.

No problem on the info I gave, it's one of my ways to have fun! Keep laughing!

Oh, if you guys haven't looked at the reviews on that Corsair PSU on New Egg, you've got to see the top one, the guy is HiLarrious! Got me a bag too but it wasn't velvet. unnhhhh
