OCZ ModXStream 600W Power Supply Cable Length Problem

I am looking to upgrade my current build:

Intel Core i5 650
1TB HDD
OCZ ModXStream 600W
Crap Acer Motherboard
Crap Acer Case
Gigabyte GTX 560
8GB RAM

I would like to replace the case with the NZXT Phantom BLACK Enthusiast Full Tower Case however I do not want to replace my power supply. I have read that the cables of my PSU are too short. Can anyone recommend cable extensions that I can purchase to fix this issue? I am Canadian so I can only purchase from websites such as NCIX and CanadaComputers.

In addition, I want to replace my motherboard with the Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 OR the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard. This depends on the CPU I will get. I am waiting waiting for NCIX to launch their boxing week sales so that I can see if they have a good deal on the i5-2500(k) or the FX-8150 or FX-8120. Also, with any of these motherboards, I will get 8GB of Kingston HyperX RAM for free. How does this sound? Thanks in advanced for any help.

Best solution

btw i have two of those psu's = you'll need the 8pin for sure!
Personally i'd go with the Intel platform = also i use Gigabyte mobo's exclusively
Bestdirect and NCIX are owned by the same parent company.
I usually just pricematch the items at NCIX.
Ncix has nice cheap fast shipping as you probably know.

Thanks for the recommendation. I will look into them more. And yeah, the Gigabyte motherboards are priced extremely well and CanadComputers is giving 8GB RAM for free with some of them on Boxing Week (26-31). I think I will go with Intel, however if there's a better AMD deal, I will go towards that... just waiting for 8PM EST for NCIX to launch their Boxing Week sales.

They are different series so length is not the same.
