I did specify specific models in each group for a reason...

The only TT's that should (atm in time) ever be purchased for high end builds are the Toughpower models.

Im not talking to any specific in this thread, I just want to point out that many brands are in more than one catergory. But you should notice that specific models and wattages are listed next to many brands in the high catergories.

Another psu you could consider is

PC POWER and COOLING Silencer 750 Quad (Copper) S75Q Power Supply Retail at ZipZoomfly

It isn't modular though so you probably don't want it but it really is a great power supply and you can't get much better then it.. Good deal on it also

well i googled PCP&C modular psu's and find out they dont have any, it takes me to a link of psu myths, well they say modular psu's suck and multiple rail psu's suck, is this true? I'm thinking it is a marketing scheme just to make everyone buy their psu's

A single powerful +12v rail, which PCP&C is known for, is better suited for an SLI or Crossfire setup.
