Can people really get away with a 450w PSU for today's machines? Seems pretty low for a recently-built rig with a decent CPU and GPU.

My PC with an Intel Core i5 2500K and GTX 570 burns at 340W at stress. They're not that hungry, really. You only need a power supply of 650W or more when you have multiple graphics cards.

The reason I'm using a Corsair AX750W though is the extreme reliability, modularity, 7 years of warranty, and inaudible fan until 450W or so.

I just built a windows home server box with a low power zacate board and 2 hard drives, 450w is more then plenty for that.  It is all in what the box is built for.

I would love to see Corsair make this line of power supplies modular. Once I went modular I never went back.

It's a budget line for a reason. Modular power supplies always need better components for voltage regulation, that's why modularity is reserved for the HX and AX series.
