Hello guys, I would appreciated if someone can tell me some recommendations of great,reliable power supply for my unit.I am making a new build and is my very 1st build at that. I will be using one EVGA GTX570 or ATI 6970 (Undecided )as my graphics card, but i would buy another in the future. So i really need something that is SLI or Cxf ready.

cpu: Intel 2600k (will overclock with mother board EZ noob friendly way)
Mobo: Asus P8Z68-V (here is the link to the mobo) hope it helps

Ram: 16gb Corsair Vengeance (Will be doing video editing)
Gfx Card:EVGA: GTX570 or ATI 6970 (Undecided)
CPU cooler: Noctua d14 or Cool Master Hyper Evo
-Will but putting anywhere between 4-6 120mm fans. If this has anything to do with it


I would like something that is also modular, I would love to have a very clean look,for optimal airflow. No spiderweb of cables lol... and if possible. Power efficiency.. I don't really know what this actually means but (80+ gold or bronze or bronze) I am assuming this are good?

Thanks

what does Semi mean? I'm sorry but i don't understand. Do you think 750w is enough to power 2 gtx 570s, plus all the other components that i have Gnomio?? Would i searched earlier and took a look at this. But since I am a noob. I thought it sucked.

here is the link sir

***Gnomio, based on your recommendation, i look at this. I am not sure if its overkill or anything. If anyone knows please feel free to help me out :D

here is a psu that is gold rated fully modular and rated 9.5/10 by jonnyguru which i think is the best psu reviewer on the web- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 153$ after promo code!
Thanks very much sir for your help much appreciated. With the rebate it looks that i would be paying $139 which is pretty sweet. :)  Now i will make a thread for the case. Maybe you guys can give me some input. :)

A Corsair HX750 is not fully modular btw,it's a semi-modular unit.
Fully modular units are very expensive and the few that exist are 1000w plus.

I don't recommend the OZC unit unless you have a UPS = has no MOV(voltage spike protection)


What do you mean Davcon ? So the OZC unit it's not good?

Semi modular means that some but not all of the cables are modular, usually the 24 pin main, 8 pin CPU and at least one PCI-E cable are hardwired

it has good voltage regulation if that is what you mean. http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=...
a normal surge protector should protect against voltage spikes. i dont think there is a need for an expensive ups

The OZC ZX are good units for the money but are missing MOV circuitry(protects components from transient voltage fluctuations).
If you're plugged into the wall during an electrical storm the unit won't filter a power spike(lightening)and it will go right to your components.
Same for any power spikes(household electrical supply isn't clean or constant)
That's a cost cutting measure by OZC to make the product affordable.
Any other suppliers have MOV included = cost more.
I wouldn't use one unless i had a really good surge protector or UPS.

That is not a disadvantage because you will need those cables anyway.

How about Corsair TX850V2 (if you don't want to spend for modular having second thoughts)
or Corsair HX850
