My specs are,

Over volted 1045 T running at 3.8 ghz with a coolermaster Hyper 212 evo.
Over volted 7850
2xCorsair XMS3
Gigabyte 990fxa ud3
1x hardrive and DVD R/W.

I want something that can handle liquid cooling, SLI/xfire( if possible for the price) and what not. Modular is preferred.

I've been recommended the Rosewill Capstone 450m by a lot of people, but I want to expand my options a bit. According to your opinion, whats the best quality PSU I can get for about 80-90$?

The Capstone is a good unit but would be very taxed in SLI/X-fire (if it could even do it since most graphics cards recommend 750W for SLI/X-fire).
This one would work quite well I would think except it is not modular but it would be my choice for your budget/needs CORSAIR CX Series CX750

I'd go with the SeaSonic G Series SSR-550RM without reservation

Oh ok, would be enough to handle heavily OC'd CPUs and (single)GPUs? For example an 8350 at 5.0ghz with an overvolted 7970?

You'll probably be looking at less than 350W under full load, it can handle that no problems, you could even add a full water loop, multiple fans, HHD's etc... and you'll still be fine

The SSR is a more efficient PSU, 80+ Gold vs. M12II 80+ Bronze certification

hmm.... If thats the only difference then It would make more sense getting a m12II right?

Oh my bad lol I was comparing the 620W version to the 550W version.

I'll just go with the G 550W then. I've read reviews on jonyguru and hardware secrets both gave the G550 a better score. Thanks for your input :D
