The PC is going to be for gaming, and some Unity game development if the computer can handle it.

So it’s apparent that you guys are fans (no pun intended) of the Corsair CX, but I have another question: should I spend a few dollars extra for the semi-modular variant, or stick with the non-modular one?

If you into really fancy cable managements you do you

But it's still the same unit with the same quality and efficiency it depends on how you value cable management

If you want a slightly better built PSU, the CX. If you value the semi-modularity, the CXM. Personally I don't mind a non-modular PSU as long as it's quality is good and is cheaper than modular PSUs, but that's up to you.
