Good Fully Modular PSU?

Im upgrading my PC, and I'm stuck on the PSU.

Here's the PC

PCPartPicker part list: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/RNfPHN
Price breakdown by merchant: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/list/RNfPHN/by_merchant/

CPU: Intel Core i7-7700K 4.2GHz Quad-Core Processor (€362.66 @ Mindfactory)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H105 73.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler (€129.04 @ Mindfactory)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z270-Gaming K3 ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (€142.02 @ Mindfactory)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LED 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3000 Memory (€149.76 @ Mindfactory)
Storage: Crucial MX300 525GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive (€154.00 @ Mindfactory)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (Purchased For €0.00)
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon RX 480 4GB NITRO+ 4G Video Card (Purchased For €0.00)
Case: Phanteks ECLIPSE P400 ATX Mid Tower Case (€75.83 @ Mindfactory)
Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA G3 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply (€147.84 @ Mindfactory)
Total: €1161.15

I would much prefer a fully modular PSU and a 80+ Gold as a minimum (I'm not on a fixed budget, so just come with suggestions)

I'm reusing my older GPU and HDD, so no need to suggest a newer GPU.

  4. ^ u cant power ur rig with that psu sadly, as pcpp says
  5. I have the EVGA SuperNOVA 750 P2, 80+ PLATINUM 750W. It has a ten year warranty, fully modular, and quiet. The Supernova line has a lot of great reviews around the net and on Amazon where I got mine. I always recommend a good brand with a good reputation, and the EVGA model you chose is a good one.

    Ignore everybody who says you dont need the 750W model. If you decide to add components like a second GPU or any additional upgrades, you have the room to do it. If budget isnt an issue, then I would maybe go for a higher efficiency rating, but that it. You should be fine otherwise.

    550w is more than enough for 7700k overclock with that gpu. having multi gpu is not really advisable cuz of the poor scaling. ppl always recommend to sell the old one n get the new model.
    so even with a 1080, a quality 550w is enough.
