Recommendations, please?

I currently have an Antec Earthwatts 500D, but I am looking to move to the following:


ASUS P8Z68-V Pro GEN3 Z68 LGA1155
Coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus
Intel Core i5 3570K Unlocked Quad Core Processor LGA1155 3.4GHZ Ivy Bridge
EVGA Geforce GTX 560 SC
WD Caviar Black SATA

In terms of PSU, I did the calculations and I would require something like a 650. I've been looking at the following:

OCZ ModXStream Pro 700w
Antec HCG-620M 620W
Antec HCG-620M 750W
Antec HCP-750W

I've always been happy with my Antec, but they don't seem very modular, but not sure this is a big deal. From what I read, the seem better built than the OCZ, but are there any other brands you could recommend?

Thanks!

    What calculator? Your current PSU should handle it, Total system load under stress test 391watts http://www.anandtech.com/show/4344/nvidias-geforce-gtx-560-top-to-bottom-overclock/15

    go with 2500k and extreme3/gen3 and contribute for a better gpu.at least a 7850.

    for 78XX CF,you don't need any more than a quality 650w unit.i would suggest the Corsair TX650 V2-
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139020
    a good deal for a 70 bucks.
