Personally I like:

PC Power and Cooling
OCZ
Enermax
Antec

Thermaltake is crap. I just replaced a 680w PurePower, check the egg, 1/5 people are complaining of the PSU just "dying" on them. I am one of those 20% of people. Mine gave no warning, and just died. Stay away from them.. good prices but crap quality.
BTW, mine was purchased 5/8/05 and died 4/5/06, didn't even last a year.

Trying to get a duplicate receipt from the retailer I purchased it from, to RMA it back to Thermaltake.

The lower end thermaltake psu's are made with cheap parts. Only the higher end ones are worth considering, but imo, it's best to just avoid them. PCP&C is the best, but it is expensive.
