  1. Did you see any options in Seasonic?
  2. The TX650 is still a good model. Somehow Corsair's latest series aren't up to the old quality.

    If you can get this one then its the best option. Oterhwise the TX650.
  3. Out of those the 650TXV2 is the best. The cables on it are reasonably long, so shouldn't have any trouble in a case that mounts the PSU at the bottom, altho of course it depends on the case.

    The OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W has fairly short cables only ~45cm to the first connector, so is less suitable for a bottom mounted case.

    Here is a good modular one:
    Thermaltake Toughpower XT 775W 80Plus Silver $120 ($6 shipping)

    BTW i7s (certainly the Sandy Bridge i7) aren't always the best option for gaming, as hyperthreading isn't really utilised by games and the money saved by getting an i5 could be put to better use.

  5. Check the reviews at or in addition to Tom's to get objective test data and component quality review info. on ANY PSU you are considering buying as you can't tell the quality without load testing. For performance, quality and reliability my personal recommendation would be a Seasonic or PC Power and Cooling PSU.
