Hello, I was originally going to get a Corsair TX-750 PSU for my setup which includes 2 radeon hd 6950's (unlocked shaders only) in crossfire.

However, recently I decided that I want a Modular psu at the same wattage.

Does anyone know of any good ones?

(I'm looking for the cheapest modular 750 psu I can find as I am on a budget. However, the psu must be a good unit and reliable.)

Thanks for all the suggestion sneeky peet!

I've decided on either the XFX750w Black Edition
XFX Black Edition P1-750B-CAG9 750W ATX12V v2.2 / ...

or the Silverstone ST75F-P 750W
SILVERSTONE ST75F-P 750W ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V 80...

I'm slightly favoring the silverstone at this point because it is 100% modular as opposed to being mostly modular like the XFX unit.

Does anyone know If the silverstone will support Crossfire? I know the XFX unit will because it is listed as sli and crossfire ready. However, I'm not so sure about the silverstone.

Also, will these power supplies be enough for two 6950's with unlocked shaders in CF?

The Silverstone lists as having 4 PCI-E connectors, so yes it will support crossfire.

And you should be OK with the PSU running your cards, I have 2 GTX460 running on my 750W PSU without any problems.

EDIT:Also you dont need to have a completely modular PSU as you will have to have the 24pin,4/8pin and PCI-E connectors plugged in all the time anyway.

Yeah, it is just the extra SATA and Peripheral connectors that you wont be using that you need to be modular.

The main cables that you use to power the motherboard etc will be plugged in all the time anyway, so can be non-modular.
