    Order of priority

    Needs to have a long life
    PSU needs to be extremely efficient
    Run cool big bottom fan
    Affordable
    Preferably 2 6+8 pins
    Would be nice if its modular
    Single rail

    I always recommend an OCZ GameXstream PSU. Great quality Tier 1. I have personally owned a 600 watt and my current 850 and they are both running extremely solid. Never any issues. I highly recommend.

    get the corsair 750w, the pc power and cooling is a bit more solid, but the corsair is plenty solid and cheaper.

    No, the Corsair is built by CWT (albiet to Corsair specs), the PCP&C is built by Seasonic. The PCP&C is a better unit, but the Corsair is almost as good, but at a lower price.
