I really want to get a new PSU because the one I had broke...so I'm looking for a good quality 750 PSU, preferably 80Plus Bronze or above. Somewhere in the $150 area, and ideally from an Australian reseller (due to plug and shipping).
I have had something like the SeaSonic X750 or the Corsair HX750 (or even TX750) in mind all though I've seen good and bad reviews, and the cost is a little above my preferred price (Is the price worth it?). I just really want a not overpriced good PSU...any recommendations?

^ Perfect for you, 80 plus silver, dirt cheap, and there's international shipping so don't worry.

Looks good, I think I'll order it in today, but is there a way to order it with an Australian plug or do I need to change it myself? And unfortunately the shipping is more expensive than the PSU itself...

I'm not sure about the cord to be honest, they originally only did US & Canada so it's probably a cord of that style & oh man that sucks :/

It's similar, but the one at NCIX is fully modular.

Is that the only difference? It might be the best I can find.

I suggest you take a look at the picture of the PSU in the ncix link that you've posted.

It's definitely semi-modular (a.k.a. hybrid modular).

The only fully modular PSU models that XFX has in their lineup are all 80 PLUS GOLD and 80 PLUS PLATINUM efficiency units.

It is exactly the same model. You just have to look at the model number.

ncix.xom: P1750BNLG9

centrecom.com.au: P1-750B-NLG9

Get it if it's available. It's made by Seasonic for XFX.
