650 Watt Modular PSU

I need a 650 watt PSU, which I would prefer to be semi-modular. I was looking at the Corsair Enthusiast Series TX650M model. Is that a good model or should I be looking at something else? It seems that, and perhaps I’m wrong, that 750 watt and up tend to be modular?

Here is a list of the current parts for my PC. I know that 650 watts is a lot for what I have, but I want to leave wattage in case I get two video cards down the road.

  3. Thanks for the replies. I decided on the AX760i (Not Yet Available). It won't be available for a few weeks, but it'll be worth it.
