I am in need of a new psu. Currently I have an Nvidia 460 gtx. I will probably upgrade that within a year or two (probably not going to end up doing SLI). What psu brand should i get and how many watts. The Antec HCG-620M and Corsair 650HX look decent but I am not sure. Thanks for any help.

Edit: Oh and I would like modular.

This PSU gets my vote at the moment due to the tremendous value - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

650w is enough power to run ANY single-GPU card on the market at the moment along with an OC'd CPU. Considering this PSU is 80+ GOLD certified and FULLY modular at the cost of $109.99, it's a GREAT deal.

Ok thanks looks like a good choice. Another question, if I were to decide to SLI two cards such as the 660s would I want a 750w?

No, the GTX660's are very power efficient so this 650w unit would work fine :) 

GTX660 Ti's would also be possible with this PSU as well. You would need to get some adapters for your 6-pin PCI-E connectors, however, it's still possible as they're very power efficient cards.
