Default OCZ PSU's worth it?

I was wondering if you guys thought the Modstream or Powerstream was worth the money because I'm thinking of getting one, but then I would be flat out broke and might wanna spend that money on other things. Also if you guys think it is worth it then which one would be the better pick (and I'm talking about the 420W/450W versions, not 520W)? I'm gonna be running dual 6800 NU so that wattage should be enough. Thanks.

The powerstream and modstream get good reviews everywhere I look and they look awesome in general, but they are pretty pricey. And yeah I know about the ultra psu, but I've never really known ultra for making good psu's, so I dunno. I'm also considering an antec true psu or maybe an enermax noisetaker.

OK I think I've narrowed it down to these three.

Antec is the most trusted and stable brand

This PSU got a 10/10 from Maximum PC Mag and the "Kick Ass" award

Are the NeoPower cables like The Ultra Quickconnect cables?

NO, but the Ultra is givingin really crappy voltage readouts. It got like a 3/10 cuz it failed all the test. Nice design, crappy PSU.
