    Honestly, for one 8800 gtx....go for the Corsair 620HX....modular, good efficiency...one of the best PSUs on the market. sorry i didn't see the op post

    there is something wrong with modular cabling, and its one of those things that most people dont know about, with modular cabling, you get a voltage drop due to the increased electrical resistance, which can be as high as 2 feet of normal wiring, its sort of like digital video cabling, the longer the hdmi/dvi cabling, the more resistance, the poorer video quality, same with modular, the resistance caused by modular cabling can be equal to that of adding 2 feet of electrical cabling, imo, that outweighs the extra airflows. with proper routing and cable management, you can have good airflow with a non-modular psu.
