Default Which Power Supply to Get?

I can think of Antec, OCZ, Thermaltake, Coolermaster.......

I'm looking to replace my 450watt JustPC PSU with something super reliable and cool.

Right now my pc freezes when I play games, and I think it's the PSU. I already have a 12" fan blowing at it's side with the cover open.

It stutters after an hour or so of gaming.


I'm looking to spend the LEAST money possible for a Brand Name PSU.

One that I can reuse after my current system gets old.

I just got the Rosewill RP550, but many people on this forum will tell you to go with the OCZ Powerstream or Modstream, whichever you can afford.

OCZ is affordable and reliable. If not, try Antec.

Forton/Sparkle/Xclico/Tagan/Cooler Master/PC Power/OCZ/Antec/Enermax/ and the super expensive TTs. I read through the whole PSU thread at DFI street and apprently the low end TTs have drooping 12 rails.

Edit: Add seasonic to your list.

Right now there is a 75 dollar OCZ modstream for sale. Free shipping and there is an additional 15 dollar rebate. Its form monarchcomputers. So if you get your rebate, it will total to 60 dollars shipped, which is pretty dam good for a power supply that has a 26 amp 12 rail.
