which of these 2 psu's

hi folks
i cant make my mind up which of these 2 psu's to buy tomorrow. with a modular psu i get more space in my case so good airflow. nut ive seen some bad reviews.
non modular i get a shed load of wires takin up loads of room, these r the 2 im lookin at

Scan.co.uk: Coolermaster GX RS750-ACAAE3-UK 750W Power Supply (PSU)

XFX Pro 750W Core Edition PSU - Single Rail 9x SATA 4x.. | Ebuyer.com

ive never bought a psu b4 and dont know which is the better modular or non modular. ive also read that 2 12v rails r better than 1. i have a a none modular dual rail at the min but its cheap 1 ezcool ps1000 infinty 800w made by JSP Tech.

which do u think is the better psu or can u suggest a decent 1. the xfx is my max budget

thanks in advance folks

Id try for a Corsair, Antec or Seasonic.
Im not too familiar with either of the 2 you've linked in terms of reliability.


Is this for the PC in your system Specs? If so, why not just go with a 550 or 650W? Will still be plenty of power with room for upgrades.

750W is a bit overkill for that setup.

When buying a PSU, it's better to get a quality brand, like Corsair.
I have one & I'm very pleased with its performance.
I'd suggest something like this: Corsair TX 650W V2 Bronze Certified

or as you plan to upgrade your hardware, this: Corsair TX 750W V2 Bronze Certified

hi n cheers for the quick reply
yeah its the pc in my specs. i was originally gonna go for a 600w but for the sake of a tenna i thought a 750w. i am planning on upgrading to a phenom x4 3.4 black and eventually will crossfire too.

edit: it doesnt say the cpu connector type 4 or 8pin or 4+4? on that corsair
