Which 750W PSU

When I first built my rig, I ran out and found a PSU. This was the CX750 and at the time, all seemed well. Now I know that they're truly crap for any sort of gaming or vaguely intensive applications. I was then looking at the RM 750 as an upgrade but then I saw this article : http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html .
This made me worry even more, as the RM 750 is placed separately from the other RMs, and is placed in the tier 3, along with my old CX 750. So now it seems that I've got a problem.

Which PSU should I get? It would need to be;


Thanks

    Performance (40% of the final score) - 10. I mean, really... were you expecting any other score in this category today? Beyond excellent ripple suppression, beyond excellent voltage regulation, easy pass for Gold efficiency both times. I mean, come on... if anything deserves a perfect score here it's this unit.

    Functionality (20% of the final score) - and it's getting another 10 here, as well. We have a fully modular unit with very nice black sleeved cables. The manual's decent. There are lots of connectors. There's a switchable fanless mode. EVGA gave us a little test adapter to see if it works before we use it. There are lots of other goodies in the box. Can you find something to complain about here? I certainly can't.

    Value (20% of the final score) - Newegg's offering this unit for $129.99 right now, with a rebate on top of that. I can't score on rebates, but I can drool all over that price. It's directly competing with the Thermaltake Toughpower Grand, which may or may not still be the same one I reviewed. That said, the real competition is from Seasonic. Their KM3 750W is ten dollars more money. And you'd probably think EVGA has this all sewn up based on that alone. But... XFX has a Seasonic built unit at this same price point, so this category is not a lock like we saw with the 850W model. I'm going to go with a 9.5 here. When a Seasonic build is your only competition, you're doing it right. In fact, I'm almost ready to say that it is Seasonic who is competing with this one than the other way around.

    Build Quality (20% of the final score) - as was the case with the 850W, I still want to see that fan control switch wiring cleaned up some. There's a little more glue on it this time holding it to the modular board insulation, but it still looks rather like an afterthought. There's room for that switch directly on the back panel... how about we do that instead, Super Flower? 9.5.
