    I am looking to buy a modular PSU around 700 watts. I need to sell my 9800gtx to fund this purchase but my budget is about $160, maybe more if I manage to sell my current PSU.

    I recommend the Corsair HX850 at $170 it is just outside your budget, but a damn good PSU.
    The HX750 is $150, so inside your budget, and also a good PSU.

    HX850's go for like $130-$140 used if you're okay with second hand hardware.
