That's more complicated than it looks... for example, the SeaSonic Platinum 1000 is poor bang for buck according to that chart, and I agree. Reason being the rather new Zero-Phase Shift topology. It's expensive to make, so the unit costs $260 while not offering the best bang for buck. On the other hand, a PC P&C Silencer 910 that uses traditional double forward primary cost $130 AR. Older topology, but has lower ripple and transients than the SeaSonic with pretty good regulation (the SeaSonic regulates the best).
