Need Help Picking PSU

Hey guys, so I am building my Computer in the next couple of weeks and was wondering what PSU I should get, this is my build:

CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Asus Z87-PLUS ATX LGA1150 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory
Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card
Case: NZXT Phantom (Black) ATX Full Tower Case
Case Fan: NZXT Air Flow Series 83.6 CFM 140mm Fan
Optical Drive: LG GH24NS95 DVD/CD Writer
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8 (OEM) (64-bit)

I would like to eventually add an extra GTX 760 but not in the immediate future. I was looking at the NZXT Hale 82 V2 because I heard that the original was amazing and made by Seasonic but just yesterday I read an article that the V2 was no good. Id be open to modular if possible but most importantly it needs to be below $100USD. Also if it could be quiet that would be great because I am already running 7 fans but if its not that is not the end of the world.

Thank in advance

They should be decent from what I've read, but almost nothing outclasses Seasonic/XFX except higher-tier models from themselves.

Thanks for all your help guys, right now I am between the Rosewill and the (what appears to be) upgraded XFX ProSeries 750W 80 PLUS Gold Certified. And yea I was having a hard time finding reviews on the Hale82 V2 but then I found one (cant remember where) that said they were no longer made by seasonic

The XFX is also modular and Gold certified and made by what appears to be the best (Seasonic) though so its a toss up for me... Unless someone comes up with an alternative PSU it is most likely going to end up being whichever is cheaper at the time of purchase.

OK thanks everyone, after reading a bunch of reviews and your guys help I have decided on the XFX Black Edition. Thanks bignastyid for leading me towards XFX. Thanks SR-71 Blackbird for your continuous help :)  I am going to be getting the 750w one. I found it on NCIX for $109 without all that rebate crap
