What is a Modular PSU

Hey guys, I have an upcoming build with an LIAN LI PC-9F and I read in a feedback that a Modular PSU is a must for this case. Can someone find me one on newegg to go with this case? Ill be using i5 2500k for pcu and Nvidea GTX 560TI gui. :

  1. What's your budget?
  2. Trying to keep it under 100 but a few over will be okay
  3. Newegg or Amazon
  4. Either one of these would be fine and would allow for sli in the future.

    You could buy a cheaper less powerful unit if you never plan on adding a second gpu.
    Something like a 600-650W modular.

    A modular power supply is one that the cables are not integrated into the unit itself. You only attach the connectors that you need so you aren't left with a bunch of unused cables that just take up space after you have connected everything, this allows for a much nicer/cleaner install.

    For a single GPU build you can get away with 550W-650W, for a multiple GPU rig you would want more of course.

    Antec 550W $64.99 -

    OCZ 600W $74.99 but has promo code for $10 off -

    Slightly better Antec 550W -

    Seasonic 620W $99.99 -

    There's a few examples of some quality units that would be more than enough power for a single GPU gaming rig, assuming it doesn't have tons of extras like lights, water cooling, tons of fans, multiple raid arrays, etc.
