Lets see for $30 more you get full modular Silver rated and a full 800 watts plus a lifetime warranty.....hmmmm let me think about that for a bit?
Ultra X4 Modular 850-Watt ATX Power Supply V2 - 850W, 135mm Fan, ATX, 80+ Silver, Active PFC, Nvidia SLI, ATI Crossfire X, Vibration Dampener Included, Lifetime Warranty with Registration at TigerDirect.com

Or for the same dough you get this, similar to above only non mod and not as high a rating:

Remember that a 850 will run cooler and with more reserve than a 600. Think of it just like a music amplifier and head room. The Silver, Gold or Platinum ratings also mean less energy used but when and if you need more you have the reserves. Keep in mind that PSU's lose about 2-3 percent a year.

Sorry, you have to rethink this equation if you are going to install those.
