Thermaltake power supply as good as Corsair?

I'm building an 800 dollar (roughly) gaming PC. I intend for it to be able to handle Xfire even though I'm not doing it currently. I had been planning on a Corsair Builder CX 600.

I logged onto Newegg and saw this unit though. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153126

I'm curious, is it any good? Wattage wise it's a bit overpowered for me, but I like that it's modular. It also has a longer warranty than the Corsair unit. I read one opinion online that said Thermaltake puts out a good product but charges top tier prices when it isn't top tier. Since it's coming in cheaper than top tier at the moment I'm trying to decide if it's a good deal or not.
