Need help choosing modular/semi-modular PSU

Hi, I was wondering if I could get some advice as to what the best options are for modular/semi-modular PSU's.

I've looked a teeny tiny bit and am considering the EVGA 750W G2 or the CORSAIR CS750.

Are there any better recommendations out there? anyone have any bad experiences with any of these two?

I'm running a GTX 770, AMD Phenom x2 @3.2ghz and two ssd's so 750W seems more than enough. Reason I'm upgrading is because my current PSU has become very noisy and is generally old and performing inconsistently.

Thanks guys.

I'm running the 850W G2 and i can say it's amazing coupled with the huge warranty on it it's a really awesome PSU plus it has the fanless mode so if you like it to run quiet then it's awesome.

Was a good replacement for my old CX750 which was a component harming piece of s***.

Don't get the CS750. It's decent but the ripple level is a bit high.

I'd get a Super Flower Leadex Gold 650W

thanks ellie, i figured evga is a reliable choice with nice warranty, plus i have an evga card so if anything it should match nicely. highlander, so it seems safe to say i should stay away for the cs models from corsair. thanks guys looks like im swaying towards the g2 750w.
