I agree with pparks.

Use a major brand such as Corsair, OCZ, Coolermaster, Antec.
When power supplies go out they take other parts with them such as moboards, CPU's and video cards.

So this is where you want top quality.

I know you guys are gonna slam me hard for saying this but Im not positive yet, I know your not supposed to skip out on PSUs but Ive seen some PSU that got great ratings and im willing to give anyone a chance, In my Build right now im running a Off brand i never though it would work right but it did, other than that...what are some price rangers from 40-60 bucks for a decent power supply, When i start to put in sli cards and over clocking crazy ill get some money for a 150-200 dollar supply, but for now I cannot, I might not even O.C the CPU to 4.0 probably 3.5 or even 3.0 to make it okay.

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 600W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply $70 600W

Newegg.com - OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ700MXSP 700W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7 $80 700W

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply $90 650W

Three best for price on sale at the moment. Shipping I think was $2 on two of them. Free on the OCZ.
Corsair and OCZ have a rebate also off price I posted.

$60 just won't quite cut it up front....but the OCZ is $55 after you get the rebate back.
This is last day to purchase for the OCZ rebate.

That is the one that has to be ordered today for rebate I posted above you.

Tomorrow is to late. Expires.

You don't have to rush into anything today. They will have a bunch of new ones on sale tomorrow or Friday. New rebates etc.
Maybe even one for $60 without worrying with a rebate.
Check back tomorrow and I'll see what I find and post it for you.
