I would go with the XFX PSU. I've read nothing but good reviews on it.

They're pretty good budget units. The "S12" stands for "Single +12V rail".

I'd rate them below SeaSonic S12II, but not hugely below.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/881 will give you a decent overview. They're not earth-shattering units but decent. Good deal for the price.

Dammit, I've mislead many people and I've never been corrected. Well, I guess it's better late than never.

It's between the tp-750 and xfx for me. I'd end up getting the antec cause the xfx is friggin ugly.

I am also contemplating spending a little extra on the Corsair CMPSU-750HX for what seems to be the most reasonably priced and highest rated modular PSU.

Opinions?
I'd say corsair. It's a coin flip, honestly. They all appear to be very good PSUs, so it's basically down to brand preference. For me the hierarchy would go Corsair>Antec>XFX, but again it doesn't matter a whole lot.

Thanks for the advice thus far everyone! The only thing I don't like about the XFX is the green color scheme, I may end up getting a different PSU just because of that.

Also, general PSU question here, forgive me if this is noobish but: If I'm mounting the PSU in the bottom of a HAF 922, do I mount the fan face up or face down? I've heard both, but mounting it face down kind of scares me because I have a lot of dogs and my floor gathers fur and dust quite quickly.
