All those psus suck. especially that x-connect. The best was the thermaltake with 18A on the +12V, which is the bare minimum for system's today. I recommend http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817182010
or

I did some research on power supplies, and just purchased this one. It got very good reviews. For example, see the Tom's Hardware review here.

18A on the +12V is bare minimal for a system like yours.

I don't think you can just say, "all those psu's suck". Seriously, some of us have a budget. There's a huge differnce in a 30 dollar unit and a 57 dollar unit. There's more than one side to this purchase.
