Just selecting PSUs for my build, and I was wondering what the difference was between these?

Antec High Current Gamer 750W 24PIN ATX12V V2.3 Active PFC 80 Plus Bronze SLI Power Supply 135mm Fan

XFX 750W PRO750W Core Edition Single Rail ATX 12V 62A 24PIN ATX Power Supply 80PLUS Bronze
http://www.bestdirect.ca/products/232783/P1750SCAB9/XFX...

OCZ FATAL1TY Series 750W ATX 24PIN SLI Ready Modular Cables 135mm Red Fan 80+ Bronze Power Supply

I like the Antec one since it'll compliment the red in my case, but I see the XFX to be recommended. I do know the Antec is not modular, but I really don't know how that affects things.

I'll be using a single Sapphire HD6950 2GB for now. I'm open to the possibility of adding another in the future.

You can Pricematch at NCIX.
NCIX,BestDirect,and DirectCanada are all owned by the same parent company.
or
Antec Truepower New 750W Modular - $111.97
http://www.directcanada.com/products/?sku=10370AC6497&v...
Both these units are Seasonic oem.
If you don't mind fixed cables the XFX is a great deal with Mir.
Otherwise the TPN is reasonably priced for less cables to deal with.
The High Current is a Delta and the OZC a Sirtec.
Seasonic builds are better imo.

Both Antec and XFX are great choices, they provide near 750W on the 12v rail while ocz only give you 650W.
