I'm building a new system, and ive decided to go with an AMD 955 paired with an ATI 5870, and 4gb of 1600mhz ram. I have been trying to pick my power supply, but i cant make up my mind Ive basically narrowed it to:

CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

or

Antec TruePower TP-750 750W Cont Power ATX12V V2.3 / EPS12V V2.91 CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

the price difference is only about 10 dollars, but i just want to go with the best one they are both ATI certified for the 5870

Both are very good, the TP-750 has the advantage of being modular and slightly more efficient, but also costs a little more. I would go for the TP-750 because most modular units have more than a $10 premium.

Both are nice PSU's. The Antec has a little more usable power (62 amps instead of 60 amps). The Corsair is very conservatively rated. It seems to actually be a 900 watt PSU:

I vote for the Corsair. But then, modular cables are not that important to me. :)

neither one is fully modular, just throwing that out there.
