I would go modular if I could afford it! But I'm pretty much in the exact same boat as you, if I go over budget I'll be eating away at the money saved for driving lessons.
Don't get the TX 750 then, get the XFX Pro Series 750w.
It's a better unit with higher efficiency and better ripple suppression.

Just read a couple of reviews and that XFX unit looks pretty damn nice, and is quite a bit cheaper than the Corsair. I guess my mind isn't made up after all!

For the price/wattage it's unbeatable.
