I would like it to be fully modular but i am alright with semi-modular as long as i dont have a huge mess of cables and the cables can reach everything in a HAF X. Also I am trying to upgrade my system and it will have a gtx 580, 16gb of ram and an overclocked Phenom II x6 1055t but i may upgrade that in the future also. Do you have any suggestions of what I should get out of these choices? Or do you have any better choices? Please help.

The Corsair AX is the best one the HX is getting old and CM has a bad track record although those got good reviews.
Other option Seasonic X850 (probably one of the best) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

so would you say the ax or the seasonic?

I would go with the Corsair AX.

Longer warranty (7-Years for Corsair AX vs 5-Years for Seasonic X-Series) and it's based on the Seasonic X-Series 850W model since Seasonic is the OEM for the Corsair AX850.
