Default I need a good 550-650w power supply.

I'm looking for a power supply to use with a single GTX 460, and a Athlon Quad. It needs to be under $75-80.Preferably modular/semi-modular, but if it isn't, whatever. The cables also need to be long enough to be routed throughout a Lian Li PC-k58w case.

I was thinking the OCZ modxstream pro 600w, but the cables are rather short, I hear.

I know Corsair makes good products but the CX line isn't that great.

I was considering the ModXStream units, but the cables are rather short AFAIK and I don't know If they will be long enough.

Oh, and that Seasonic probably isn't powerful enough for a Phenom II Quad, and a GTX 460. (plus a GT 240, and some drives.)

The CX line is being made by a different manufacturer than Corsair's other PSUs, hence the crappy quality. I hope they learn their lesson on this one.
