like "modular" next to some psu's and "best" next to mx-2 and "mid-tower" next to 690 and "full tower" next to ARMOR and "crossfire" next to p5k

Thanks veedub. Needs a lot of work though. That's in the range of $1000-1500. There should be a low-end and very high-end. And a list for both Intel and AMD too.

I'll make a separate thread on it.
