Hi. I need a good PSU for my machine I'm currently building.

I'll need a minimum of 600w and for it to be at least 80 plus bronze.

I would prefer for it to be black, modular and have crossfire compatibility.

Thank you!

System specs:

i5-3570k hoping to OC

Gigabyte 7870 or 7950

ASRock Z77 Performance

Cooler Master HAF 922

1TB Hard Drive

64GB SSD

a c 76 ) Power supply

A good 550W unit would power that system with no problem (even overclocked).

Here's an outstanding modular 550W unit: SeaSonic G Series SSR-550RM 550W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

And this is a very good modular 600W unit (although it's only 80+, not 80+ Bronze): OCZ ModXStream Pro 600W Modular High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandybridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom

For a power supply I would go with a Corsair HX750, it's not fully modular but the cables that aren't modular are the 24-pin motherboard connector and the 8-pin cpu connector so you'll be using them anyways.

Corsair HX750 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

This will be plenty of power for your machine, and at a 80 plus gold marking :D 

Also if you are looking for fully modular you could go with the AX line from Corsair but to me that's just extra money for 2 more cables to be modular
