Corsair 550VX is obviously a very good choice no doubt...

But how much is the price difference between the Cooler Master and the Corsair ?
And will you be using the PC mainly for gaming ? And what is that monitor's resolution ?
If that PC will mainly be used for gaming, the I would drop to a lower priced PSU like the Antec EA 500/ CM 550 if it is cheaper/ Or even any 450W+ PSU from Antec EA, ECO Series or CM Real Power or Silent PRO series/ Corsair 450VX and with the money saved, get the HD 5770 instead of the 5750...

+1 on dropping down on PSU(Even 450VX will suffice) and get a better card(5770) for gaming.

If you've already bought 5750 then go for 550VX.

If you buy a Corsair, how many unused cables will you have? Less than 3? I'd recommend the Corsair.

I do something different. Before I build, I drill extra holes in the bottom of my cases to tie down unused cables out of the way.

The Antec BP550 is a good PSU (actually the only good Antec BP), so you will be safe with it, if you are looking for modular. Corsair is the better PSU, so if you want the best for the price (modular or not), Corsair is the way to go... IMO
