Looks pretty good. There's no way you'd need 750w though, I've had basically the same as that with a highly overclocked 670 running on a 400w Silverstone ST40F-ES.

True the 750w is a little overkill but at the current price and compared to other modular PSUs its a great deal!

Yeah it's a good deal, but the PSU I mentioned would be perfectly adequate and would cost half as much :) Just because it seems like good value doesn't mean it pertains to your needs in particular.

Yeah I agree but being a modular PSU does help out a lot with cable management in the confines of the Prodigy. Just double checked, could go with a FSP 550w but its only like $25 less.

I would say that price is frequently more important than value, and that one of those situations is when deciding between two good PSUs that would both be adequate.

But you're right, modular would very likely help.

Yep, and it is also fully modular. Somehow I missed it when I looked...
