Im looking for a PSU for $80 or less that would power my system with headroom for overclocking.

I was looking at CX750 Modular, but heard that the PSU has a bad coil whine. I also found the corsair gaming series (GS700) but wasn't sure how good it is.

Hi - lonewolfs suggestion is a solid PSU. I recommend it frequently.

But, if you want to stay under $80, then consider:

Antec lists this as Haswell ready, but not confirmed yet. Don't think it's an issue

Both wolf's XFX suggestion and the hcg620 are a step up in quality from the cx/gs series.
