    Those are a little overkill for what you have, or are you getting one large enough for future upgrades? Any of them would be good for a while. If I had to choose one, 850w Corsair. :toast:

    If you have an open case and care what the inside of your computer case looks like, then yes modular is very nice. IF its a closed space and nobody will ever see the inside then its not really that necessary. It is convenient because you don't have to plug in the cables that may impede the air flow going through your comp but you can usually store the cables in the bottom or ziptie them out of the way.

    I have modular and love it.

    Okay, down with the modulars!

    Which would be the most ideal one to run an i7 920 and 2x 4890s? Obviously the 850W would be better, but is the 750W enough?

    I'd get a Corsair TX 850W for that.

    The 750W would be enough but if your getting such a powerful rig...why not spend that little bit more ;)

    Leaving room for expansion and OC'd i7 I get 700W typical load and 820W peak load.

    If you OC the 4890s too, you could see about 900W peak load.

    So I say (Like Pinchy said) if you're spending that much on the rest of the system, dont scrimp out on the most important part of any PC.

    Get the Corsar TX 850W or something similar :)

    Overclocking is a must! 850W it is! I've held out long enough, now that the 4890's are out and at a great price, it's time to build. I'd wait for the 4890x2's, but then I'd probably be waiting for the 5xxx's...
