Default need help choosing a new psu

right now i have a 450w powmax psu that came with my case which i am afraid that when it burns out it will take a part of my computer with it, and i'm pretty sure that it will burn out. right now my system does not have that much power but i want stability cuz i cant overclock with this powmax psu. i want my power supply to last a while so i would like it to be sli but it does not have to have modular cabling. i need good amps for +12v and maybe dual +12v rails. i would also prefer a reliable brand like antec and a few others. i can wait for sales because i do not need the psu immediately but the sooner the better.
