Would either of these PSUs have enough upgradeability to add another 4890 or GTX 275 in the future

I am leaning more towards the modular psu but would it have enough upgradeability?

The Corsair TX 750W can handle 2 GTX 275 or 2 4890 very easily.

The Corsair HX 620W can handle GTX 275 or 4890 or even a GTX295 very easily (but i do not thing that the Corsair HX 620W will handle 2 GTX 275 or 2 4890).

i say the corsair hx 620 but i really can't see why the hell people spend $100+ for a dam power supply, you know my friend picked up a coolmax 600watt and runs a 4890 and 2 hds and 2 dvd drivers no prob at all. save youe self some money and get something else, but since there are so many hard core games then will save i am crazy

Because you get what you pay for. The PSU is the most important component of the system. With a cheap underpowered psu you shortne the life of the whole system. With a quality psu you get clean power with the proper amount of power for the system. A quality psu can last 5 to 10 years without any issues.

Ya the 620w modular seems like a solid choice due to the improved efficency and air flow

I went with the 750 because it was priced under the 620 one week when they were both on sale with rebates. I kind of wanted the modular cables which are nice however the idea of tossing in another card for crossfire or sli and having that extra juice was important.
