PSU with detachable / modular cable management Vs stable cable (Recommendations)
I was thinking about upgrading my PSU and I was looking at the following 2 Thermaltake PSUs
THERMALTAKE W0132U TOUGHPOWER 1000W (Modular Cables)
THERMALTAKE W0155RU TOUGHPOWER 1000W (Non Modular Cables)
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)
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)
