The option of getting the cables specific to your needs is nice, but once again Enermax makes some of the best PowerSupplies. I've got a EG 651 running my dual Xeon, and a EG-851 on my new A4400+ X2.
Both are great.
I had to get a Antec Truepower 2 @ 430W temporarily, and though it ran, I had to take out half my ram to make it stable.

If given choices between those two PSUs listed above, I would pick Enermax.
