No other brand has ever been proven better or more durable than PC Power and Cooling. Antec and Seasonic are also quite good but PC Power and Cooling is unquestionably the best.

Buy the Corsair 500W Builder Series™ CX500 V2 80 Plus PSU at TigerDirect.ca

edit: haha just noticed it is the same one jasonalwaysready recommended for cheaper

The builder series has terrible reviews they are cheap and can't be recommended.

Corsair HX or TX lines, SeaSonic, PC Power & Cooling, or Antec are my suggestions.

Lol figured I would bring that up so they don't go looking for a SeaGate PSU and a SeaSonic HDD

Are they better than the no name brand PSUs that come in Dells that fail in under 2 years? :P

Here are a few quality units to choose from in your price range.

Newegg.com - SeaSonic S12II 430B 430W ATX12V V2.3/EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Newegg.com - Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply

Newegg.com - Antec EarthWatts Green EA-430D Green 430W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS 12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

All have rated higher than the "builder series" Reference jonnyguru if you have any questions regarding the quality of a psu.
