    Default Now that I've read the reviews, recommend me one PSU

    Sorry to basically post over and over, but here goes.

    -OCZ GameXStream 700W
    -Corsair HX620W
    -Corsair HX520W
    -Any comparable Seasonic to the Corsairs
    -Toughpower 700W

    1) Price is a biggie. The OCZ apparently holds true to its 700W but has ripple over ATX specs. It's for around $130. Meanwhile, the Corsairs range from 120-160, but have a lot less ripple. I can get the Toughpower locally at Fry's for around $130 without tax.
    2) After price comes modularity (is that a word? lol). I know that everything except the OCZ is modular, but price comes first. I can always hide the cables in the back of the case if needed.
    3) Will it fit my future? below

    I will probably upgrade in the next 2 years to a C2D CPU (or quad core for that matter), possibly an 8800GTX, and stuff like that. Any of the PSUs not capable?

    Thanks for the help.

    You may want to reconsider Toughpowers, ...I have 3-750's in my possession, and every single one buzz's. There is also another person here, who just purchased one and is having the same issue...I'm not saying they are all that way.......but obviously something is not right in quality control.
