Antec is a reliable brand however i am not sure how good their PUS are in the 700-800 range. Most of the Antec power supplies i have seen people do their builds are usually around 400 to 600 range.

Please make sure you have the right connections or enough connections in whatever power supply you buy. Unless you plan to O/C + 2X graphics cards I don't consider 800 watts a good buy. Then again who knows what your build will have

Read the customer reviews. If a particular line of power supplies is having problems you will catch wind of it there.

Also google the exact model number of the supply you are considering and look for technical reviews. Sites like Tom's Hardware do some very extensive testing and you can take away lots of good information.
