That was my problem, and sure I saved a few bucks, but I was wishing I spent the extra money when the parts came to save me the cable-gami nightmare that awaited me. Unless that's you're thing/don't care how messy your case innards are.
To be honest, unless the extra cabling would be blocking airflow, or you have a window and want to show off the guts, there's very little need for a modular PSU. I bought my 620HX when they were new, both it and the 520HX are actually really old designs, for the dynamic cooling ability and silent operation. It's still silent today, after 2.5 years, had to look it up!
