After all, the guy who will get me my PSU told me that dont accept MIR, so i should choose something around 600w and 700w, i have two options anyway im open to recommendations:

Seasonic

XFX XXX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

There a lot of bad comments about XFX but looks awesome with that green fan anyway i dont care about that and theres another model of XFX just not XXX series

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

isn't bad at all i think and its a bit cheaper than xxx and seasonic, what do you say guys?

if necessary my rig is
Sandy bridge 2500k
P8P67 PRO
x2 2GB Gskill ripjaw series
Gigabyte 560ti SOC not doing sli :( 
TX750(sold)

better edit my thread than making another.

Had an Emax lib400 3years ago not the same model but my computer had a lightning strike and the psu/cpu/mobo/mem still worked though my r45 jack was fried. I gave it to a buddy who is still using it now. Looks like they have the same modular set up which was nice and easy to hide away from fans.

Both of the above PSU's are actually based on the same design, and both manufactured by seasonic. So in terms of internals, they're basically he same.

Since you can't do rebates, might as well grab the seasonic's own branded version for the $5 savings.

i was going to choose antec, but there are more comments about clicking and pitching sounds than xfx or seasonic, and i want more modular.

The Antec TP New's are made by Seasonic.
AFAIK XFX has had the most complaints about clicking and noise in the last 6 months.
Which to be honest are sometimes a loose wire or plastic shroud making contact with the fan.

Well if just was a loose wire or something else it's ok, but TP's have a lot of hardwired cables, i think isn't modular.

Choosed seasonic above other because its a trusted brand and RMA's from mexico took around 1-2months and a lot of money.
