Need help picking out a PSU

Hello all!

I am building my first PC and have a question about picking out a PSU. My build is:

i7 4770K (not overlocking, just got a good deal on it)
Asus Maximus VI Hero
16GB Crucial Ballistix Sport
EVGA GTX 780 Superclocked 3GB
NZXT 440h Case

I'm looking for a good PSU, I originally ordered a 600W Corsair but found out that wasn't going to be enough power for my components. Now I'm looking at getting an 850W to have some room to breath.

NZXT only currently has a Gold certified 850W for $179.99, Amazon had their previous Bronze certified 850W for $109.99 and I was going to get that, but they say it is 'temporarily out of stock' but NZXT tells me it is discontinued and amazon won't be getting any more.

Anyway, does anybody know of a good 850W PSU would be for me to get? Fully modular would be great, but not a deal breaker if it's not. I'd like something around the $100 range or less - but I can spend more if I have to. Thanks!!


EDIT: Wow, you guys are fast! I'm currently checking out the XFX. Quick extra question, what does "Single Rail Power Supply" mean?

EDIT 2: Thanks again everybody, I decided to go with the Cooler Master V850 850W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply.

Check out Corsair AX860. It's made by Seasonic, fully modular, platinum efficiency. Newegg has it for 169.99, and 149.99 after MIR.

And a good 600W psu would be enough for that setup, unless you're talking about 2 way 780 SLI.

The XFX ProSeries 850W Semi-Modular (Bronze) - P1-850X-XXB9 is equivalent to the NZXT HALE82-850-M that you were considering. Both models use Seasonic as the OEM and are based on the Seasonic M12II platform.
