Corsair. You can also get the XFX 650 (modular) or the Seasonic M12II 620.

Is there any difference on the HX and TX besides modularity?

Corsair.

OCZ has several PSU lines ranging in quality from pretty good to excessively mediocre. And I can never remember which one is which.

^^Yes. That's true. Although its a reputed brand, their PSU's are not that up to the mark. Corsair should be the default choice. There is one Seasonic 650W 80+ Gold certified one as well. You can look out for that.

I have two OCZ drives at work, a 400 watt SteathXtreme (running a C2D 5400 @ 3.5Ghz and a Radeon 4650) and it has been solid as a rock and pretty damn quiet. I also have a 700 watt ModXtreme one, running a i5 750 @ 3.6Ghz (w/out turbo) and a Radeon 5770. It has also been as solid as a rock. I have a Corsair HX850 at home, running loads of stuff, and it ALSO has been as solid as a rock (not surprisingly, as Corsair are supposed to supply the higher quality parts).

So I would say this:- If you want to save money, get the OCZ. If you want a spoogeworthy PSU which will outlive cockroaches in the event of a nuclear holocaust, then get the Corsair. Cant comment on the XFX ones.

But honestly, the new StealthXtreme 2 PSU's are good quality, I would say. More efficient than the previous gen too, from what I gather. So dont be scared of saving a few quid and getting one :)
