Default Best Modular PSU

ok I'm looking to upgrade the PSU in my comp, well what is the BEST Modular PSU that is modular, highy efficient, reliable, and Blue. I ask blue because i'm trying to keep the ambiance in my pc blue. I ask this because i find some PSU's that look good like X-connect, and X-connect 2,HiperTypeR, but they are crap. Also this needs to be able to handle quad sli, and a quadcore cpu for future-proofness something along the lines of q6600

Its really not hard to find them.. Use my guide (Linked in sig, yours would fall under high end gamming system) and newegg search feature to find them all.. For what you stated you would want a PSU of no less than 700 watts. (quad SLI!!! LOL!!)

Uh...it was a joke..because before he listed both PhysX and quad SLI in his sig, along with a sound card, which is impossible.

Doesn't each 7950GX2 eat up one extra slot? So that makes two slots useless. Where is the space for the PhysX and X-Fi.
