Need advice on a new PSU

Hey! I've recently upgraded my PC and I'm looking to get a new PSU because it's starting to make grinding noises occasionally, and lacks the amount of connectors I'd like.

My parts are:

ASUS P8Z77-V LX Mobo

i5 3750k

Sapphire 7950 Vapor-X

(And I'm looking to upgrade my case to a HAF 922)

So what I'd like to know is what would be a good PSU for my system? The mobo requires a 8 pin EATX 12V and a 24 pin EATXPWR and my GPU requires 2x 8-pin EATX12V. Though currently I only have a 4-pin EATX 12V plugged into my mobo, as I had no more 8-pins to spare after powering the GPU. It still runs fine, but I'd rather be able to plug an 8-pin in there. So could anybody suggest a good, affordable PSU that has all the connectors I need? (I'd rather stay away from modular PSUs)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'd recommend a 650w psu like the corsair TX650 V2 because its 80+ bronze, low ripple, affordable and non-modular(don't know why modular is worse for you but nvm)

btw if you want more power for future proofing try the corsair TX750 v2 or the rosewill hive 750w
