if i could get it for less money, would it be worth getting the 850w? the only thing im wondering is whether im going to need a modular one for such things as future upgrades and this aerocool touch 2000 frontpanel

now you've given me the choice of the corsair tx750w, hx750w, 850w and the antec, im severely stuck for choice. what would your recommend?

Modular PSUs are good in that you can only hook up what you need, but I have no experience with them to know if they are worth it or not, It's simple enough to put the extra connectors out of the way. With that said, Antec is a great brand and the price is right. Go for it.
