Always go to quality over cheapness on a PSU. You should find a quality one then hunt the discounts on that brand or model.

I know but to be fair, most cheap brands won't make fully modular PSUs.

They're semi-modular, not fully.

Never scrimp on the most important part of your computer. A quality power supply adds life and stability. I agree, find the quality one you want and search for discounts.

Side note: I am not sure the words 'cheap' and 'fully modular power supply' have ever been seen together in the wild. ;)

That's semi-modular.

Ah damn, looks like OCZ is your best bet then, I wish I had gone modular every time I rebuild my machine, it's like trying to cable manage Medusa

Yeah, that's right.

Maybe I'll just go semi-modular instead, they're cheaper (of course).

Not including Powercool (I don't trust that brand), the prices are (prices inc. VAT):

Really? I can't see anywhere that says that, it was listed under Modular vs the others under Semi[list]

As an owner of the OCZ Modxstream Pro 700W, it is a decent power supply. It's about 86% efficient (carries the 80+ badge), and it's cheap! It's not fully modular, as you mentioned, but it does cut down on the cable mess!

The best bet if u want fully modular would be the OCZ ZT series. But again it doesn't matter if the ATX plug is not modular, because you have to use that one anyways :p

Is it only the ATX plug that is not modular on all of the semi modular PSUs ? I was wondering if it was a necessary cable anyway

Isn't that needed for all motherboards?

I currently have a two-year-old Asus P7H55-M SI (LGA 1156) motherboard for my Core i5-750 that uses the PSU's ATX connector to power it.

To be fair, it's a huge connector so if it has been fazed out in the past 2 years, I'll be glad.

Yea its needed for all motherboards, I meant I wondered if the non-modular cable was a necessary cable as you can't see the plug end in the pics :)

Most semi modular have the ATX and one or two 8 pin or (4+4) motherboard connectors.And even on fully modualr its still required because a system will need it :p

This is my choice:

Yea I know the ATX + CPU leads are required, I just didn't know if they were the ones attached to a semi-modular PSU :)

Yup you were/are correct. Some even less modular ones have PCi-e plugs on it as well. Which if you have higher end GPU's you will need those too so it shouldn't matter.
