I'm looking for a Modular PSU for a Core I7 860 setup where I might do some light OCing (or none at all) and it'll be running one ATI 5770. Nothing much else going on.

I was thinking about Seasonic x650, so that's the bar, I hope there's a CHEAPER PSU in town that is also modular. =)

Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance.

How's this one:

It's got 2 fixed cables, +12v x4 - 20amps each.

How many amps do I need on my +12v rail for the core i7 860 and ATI 5770?
What's the deal with these multi +12v rails, good/bad??

Thanks again.

I'd recommend a minimum of 40A total on the +12V rail for that setup. The BFG MX-550 is a good PSU but kind of hard to find nowadays, at least here in the U.S. As for the multi-rail issue as well as other PSU questions you may have, refer to this FAQ:
