Default Buying a PSU

I must buy a PSU from this place: MICROBYTES, Montreal's Computer Warehouse, Computer Montreal Quebec

It is my only local store for miles and miles and I do not have a means of purchasing stuff online. So, from there, I would like to find the best psu possible rated between 350-450 watts and costs between $50-$70 CAD (canadian).

Any suggestions? I was looking at the Antec SP-400 at $70, is it any good? Is there a better choice? Thanks ahead of time.

I would go with the 380w Antec EarthPower. Its cheaper and better than the 400w SP.

You can look at the EarthPower series. But the True Power 2 not 3 and NeoHE lines are good. The best Antec model seen in the 350-450w range in the 430w Neo HE430 seen at MICROBYTES, Montreal's Computer Warehouse, Computer Montreal Quebec But the better Antecs will go over $70 CAD. This also seen with the others like Corsair, OCZ, Ultra. Will this be for a gaming rig or just a basic desktop and no ocing planned?
