I'm very happy with my 400R (one step down from the 500R) but I don't see anything "wrong" with the HAF XM either.

I would go with the one that you think would look better in your home.

I'm unsure about the HAF quality, but the 400r is well built and well thought out.

My only reason for getting the 400R was the ease with which I can find 120mm and 140mm fan filters for the fans I wanted to add on the side.

The 500 comes with a 200mm fan.

Are stock fans cool and quiet or you need to add more fans?

My 400R didn't come with a 200mm side fan, so I don't know. However I can't imaging a 200mm low RPM fan being loud.

I'm running a TX750 +SLI and it's been great. But as mentioned above, either of the ones you are looking at are nice.

My two graphics cards make all the noise when I'm loading up the PSU, I can't hear it at all when that happens.

Just surfing the internet and other easy stuff...it's pretty much silent.

I'm at 4Ghz with an i7 right now, but I bet my 1045t X6@ 3.4Ghz pulled more power when I was running that and my two GTX 560's.

It never showed any signs of stress with that rig.

I wouldn't worry about my TX750 at all if I were to get aggressive with my OC.

I have no direct experience with the XFX, but all the testing I have seen says they are well built and perform well.

You will be fine with either the TX750 or the XFX850w.

Whichever one is coming, enjoy it.

It's about a year old now, but it's got a lot of "miles" on it. It's done well thus far.
