Buying a XFX 850W modular PSU.

 

Do modular PSUs come with all the same cables that a normal PSU has, or does it have fewer cables and you have to buy specifically what cables you need on top?

Yes they should.

It's a P1-850X-XXB9.

The XFX website just says it comes with a "cable set", whatever that is :)

That looks like an awesome model for people who might need a secondary PSU to power additional drives, possibly in an external SAS/RAID setup. Most modular PSUs I have used still have the motherboard and CPU power cables hard wired to them.

All half-modular and fully modular units I've seen have always come with exactly as much cables as there are connectors on the modular board. It'be a shameless rip-off if they didn't, and I would prompty remove it from our listings, too.
