  1. PSU with detachable / modular cable management Vs stable cable (Recommendations)

    Hello,
    I was thinking about upgrading my PSU and I was looking at the following 2 Thermaltake PSUs

    THERMALTAKE W0132U TOUGHPOWER 1000W (Modular Cables)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153053

    THERMALTAKE W0155RU TOUGHPOWER 1000W (Non Modular Cables)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153056

    Other than modular cable management, does the W0132U offer anything more?
    Are modular cable PSU as stable as non-modular cable PSUs? I heard some time ago that they're not as reliable. Please correct me if I'm wrong!

    Also what's the difference between THERMALTAKE W0132U TOUGHPOWER 1000W
    & THERMALTAKE W0132 TOUGHPOWER 1000W?

    My current setup:
    Intel Core 2 Quad 9550 2.83GHZ @2.83GHZ (Regular Fan-Cooler)
    Kingston HyperX 2GB 800MHZ @833MHZ
    Asus P5B-E Intel 965 chipset (On-board 1Gbit Lancard)
    2 x 1TB Seagate 32MB Cache Hds (Sata II)
    2 x 512GB Seagate 16MB Cache Hds (Sata II)
    Asus nvidia 7950GTX 512MB
    Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatality Titanium Pro (PCI-E)
    Winfast PVR 3000 Deluxe TV-Tuner (PCI)
    1x Plextor DVD-RX 18x
    1x Pionner DVD-Rom 16x
    1 x 1.44 Floppy
    Logitech Web-Cam (USB)
    WinXP Pro

    I'm considering about upgrading to a high-end GPU soon, so what type of PSU would I need for the above setup?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've been using a Antec 500 watt modular supply for the last 2 1/2 years without any problems. I just bought a Corsair 520 ps which is also modular. I'd suggest getting either a Corsair 520 or 620 or Seasonic modular power supplies.

    I've been using a Corsair 520W P/S on the new computer for 4-5 months now, no issues. Computer has been on 24/7 for about the last month. In addition to the modularity, I find the Corsair to be pretty quiet.

    This Thermaltake Modular PS will provide more than enough wattage and with the $50 rebate is $210, plus free shipping (which has become ridiculously expensive as of late)
