Splendid reviews.
Are the modular and non-modular XFX 750W PSUs essentially the exact same in terms of how they perform? If it's just a matter of going modular to save a bit of space, make it easier to upgrade to another modular PSU in the future and also easier to clean the PSU, I'm not sure if it's worth the extra $36.90?

What are your thoughts?

As for the psu for a single card setup there is no need to get more than 500w worth of quality unit, 650+ is probably all you need for duel gpu setups. check the TDP of your components and you can work out for yourself how big a psu you need.
To be honest, I am thinking this Kingwin Lazer Platinum Series 550W is the absolute best PSU I can pick up for single GPU setup. It should be able to handle any card as well as overclocking for any variation of the GTX500 series, right? But can 550W of solid power be expected to work with the GTX600 and 700 series in the future too?

Obviously no one will know for sure until we see the tdp figures for the new cards, but the gtx 280 tdp = 236w gtx480 tdp = 250w the gtx580 draws just 243w. So It is highly unlikely you will need anything bigger than 550w for a single gpu set-up in the next few years at least.

Do those tdp figures include overclocking the gpu too?

*Sigh*.

Goign to make a thread soon with my 1055t with only 2 cores active vs all 6.
Lots of people ask bottleneck questions, but even more people recommend 4+ core CPUs for gaming.

no they are stock tdp's but I'm sure with a little hunt around you can see how much that changes oc'ed

Read the thread I think you will find no one tells him he has a bottleneck just that if he wants to upgrade something a better quality psu would be nice.

The only bottleneck I see here is your hard drive.
Grab an SSD and you'll see the result of technology

Ah .. Yeah, that's all true.
I just prefer modular ones in my relative crumbled insides of an Antec 300.

Oh well, XFX 750W PSU then !

EDIT: I belive there is an XFX 650W as well somewhere out there. Perhaps it is better suited.

ssd will be fast but cost alot. A faster boot drive mite help, 9800gtx=250 just a few changes, ax850 will cost a bit but good power (seasonic internals) ,as for gpus go get 560ti for cheaper, or 580 if you got cash to burn. could push cpu a bit more 4 core is all u need. But gpu and psu holding u back a bit. But noting to bad.
