EVGA is best bang for the buck right now.

I like to look at the reviews at JonnyGuru for specific models that I am interested in purchasing to see what OEM is used, and how the quality of that specific model is.

Many of the manufacturers use different OEMs for different lines, or models in the lines. It can get quite confusing, but reading the reviews, and how they are tested gives a good idea of what to get or not.

The last 3 PSU's that I have purchased were 2x EVGA 750GQ, and a seasonic 550G. Theyre not top of the line PSUs, but have a good balance of budget and minimum quality.

The PSU Scotty posted looks good for the price. Better quality than the GQ, for about $10 more.

JG gives all of the Supernove series pretty much 9.x out of 10 so you're all set. 7 or 10 year warranty too.

BTW, this is not a paid EVGA endorsement either. I'm a Seasonic guy.

I bought a corsair cx550m for my htpc since it was about $25 after rebate... it's been ok, and its a locked cpu. But I still wish I ponied up a little more for a better quality unit.

EVGA has a great upper segment, but they have so many different oems that it gets confusing. Seasonic units have been very good, which is why I got 2x 750gq models for builds that I was doing. I would argue that they are some of the best value PSUs on the market without rebates or special sales.

I'm going with Scotty's recommendation. Gonna up it to 750w for a little more breathing room, I'll be putting my mcp655 in there at some point and I have some lighting, sound card, headphone amp, 4 240mm fans, 3 120's, a fan controller, a couple spinners, a ssd and the gpu pulls 350w alone so even though 650w is enough I'll take a little more breathing room.

10 year warranty equates to ~12/yr USD for a psu. Yes thank you.

at 90 bucks, it's about the same as buying all the sleeving. Plus you'll have an extra set of cables

Good man. I like a little overkill myself.

Seasonic man myself, have built with others in the past such as corsair which went well and evga which didn't impress too much, last time I looked up johnny guru it was out of date, if he's updated it would be great.

EVGA PSU installed and working well. The unit i replaced was an OCZ and was the second psu I had from them. Both died within 6 mo's of warranty expiring. They don't make PSU's any longer. Good riddance!

Thanks for the reply, with most power supply manufacturers these days, most models are not built in house but sourced from other manufacturers and branded accordingly, most do it these days including the top names so you have to be careful what you buy.
