I was just posting a possible alternative, probably the next step down from fps in my opinion.

Usally what PZero said holds true, if a power supply looks really nice, then its probably a horrible one on the inside, Except for OCZ and PC power and cooling, and the enermax liberty.

On occasion; my brother has an aspire 520w which looks really nice, and it preforms even better. I doubt the 200+ reviewers of the psu aren't saying it's a good psu if it wasn't; and more than half probably know what they're talking about (knowing volts/amps, etc.)
I still haven't been given a reason as to why you think the aspire or thermaltake psu's aren't as good as the fps, I think it's just preferance.

Will this last me at least a few months until I can get a heavy-duty one?

I think so, but you're better off with the fps 450w.
Or if you want looks and performance, like I said, the aspire 520w isn't bad
