Antec, OCZ, PCP&C are the ones I recommend the most. There are some other nice brands. PCP&C are the best but also one of the most expensive.

thermaltake make decent power supplies but apparently have a reputation for sudden death. they work perfectly but seem to die for no apparent reason. personally i love Antec power supplies
