BTW, if your heart is set on the RM's get the 650 not the 750. It's a better unit.

I totally agree. While neither is a bad psu, there's better. Have you considered EVGA supernova G2 class? Your best bet is cruise the jonnyGURU site and take notes on all the reviews. Find the ones that seem to be the consistent high quality and look at the power rating that you need (btw 550 is more reasonable than 750) and buy the one on sale.
