I'm looking to build my first gaming PC and I have no idea what PSU I will need.
I have a limited budget but I need something that will be future proof, anyways... these are what I need/want the PSU to be able to do...

OC CPU. (I5-3570K) inb4 "no need to OC"... I just wanna ok :p 
TWO nVidia GTX 660Ti's.
Run Smoothly.
Preferably between £50-60. ($75-90) (€58-70)
Prefer modular.

I have been looking at the Corsair CX750M but was hoping there was something a little bit cheaper? And i'm not even sure if that will be suitable haha
Thank you in advance!

The 660TIs aren't that power hungry. Around 150 or 160W each going from memory. Anything that can output 500W of power or so on the 12V rail should do. Issue you'll have is the TI needs two 6pin PCIe plugs, so 4 plugs in total. This usually means a 750W PSU, or one of the newer gold 650s. What PSUs are available to you in your price range that are around 650-750W and have the four plugs?

^+1 to what 4745454b said. Very important, the PSU brand. Look for Corsair, Seasonic, XFX, Antec, BeQuiet!

I can, but he can't because you deleted it. The CX750M is worth it. Should power your system without problems. You said it was expensive however so as I said list other PSUs that are more in your budget. Will probably be rather hard to find a quality modular 750W for that price range however.

Should have asked, I could have brought it back;) Should be a fine PSU, I doubt it will give you issues. Good luck on your build.
