Need a new power supply, fully modular, and which wattage? <$70

Hello,

In the next week my setup will be totally changing, my noisy power supply needs a new change. Right now I have a 500 watt Stallion Rosewill psu that is quite noisy when idle. I'll need a power supply that won't require extension cables for a mid-sized tower, atleast 5 sata connections, and enough juice and cables to power a Gigabyte 7950. This thing must be quiet too. Here will be my new setup:

CPU: FX- 6300 (OCed at 4.2GHz @ stock voltage)
Mobo: Gigabyte 970A-UD3P
Ram: Assorted ram sticks @ 8GB (4 slots filled on board)
Graphics card (new): Gigabyte 7950 3GB
HDD: 3 3.5" 7200 RPM drives and 1 2.5" 5400 RPM Drive
DVD Drive: LG SuperDrive
PSU: ???
Case: Cougar Solution Black
Extras: A H55 Corsair Cooler and a set of 2 cathode ray tubes. I'm running 4 fans.

I was thinking this power supply.

    No, you don't want a G1. The B1, G1, W1 and all NEX series EVGA PSUs are much lower quality than their B2, G2, P2 and V series units.

    Since that's overclocked as well, you probably want something in the 600-650w range, this would be a good choice.

    That's Semi-modular, not fully modular as outlined int the title of the thread.
  4. Is there any under $70? I see that a lot you guys have responded, which is great, but I wanted to know if I could get any under that price. I'd be fine paying a little bit more for the Seasonic that was $85. Should I only be expecting semi-modular?
  5. Even for a semi-modular unit, if you want something of reliable quality, this is about the cheapest it gets for a unit over 600w without mail in rebates. EVGA B2 series semi-modular design.

  6. I appreciate all the help you guys have been in such a quick time, I've decided I will purchase the SeaSonic within the next month. If any deals come up I'll look back and use what you've given me to compare models of power supplies.
  7. As a basic source of reference, any model of 600w or more listed at a position of Tier 1 or Tier 2 at the following link would be a good choice:
