Hi guys like the title says, i need some help, in my system specs you can check out my current rig. I must replace my PSU since it's at it's absolute limit, as a matter of fact it's starting to act up regarding the voltages it's giving to some of my components.

That being said, here's the full list of PSU's i can get, the pricing it's 10 pesos = 1 dolar more or less.

Let me know what's better for me in a bang kind of way.

I would like a PSU that could hold my setup and gave me a little bit of wiggle room for something else. FYI I am not into Xfire nor SLi, so don't worry about that, i mean a processor change, or maybe a VGA change someday.

SENTEY BRP700 700W $ 1.229

COOLER MASTER GX II 650W 80 Plus Bronze $ 2.208
COOLER MASTER GX II 750W 80 Plus Bronze $ 2.595
COOLER MASTER I700 700W 80 Plus Bronze $ 1.984

THANKS A LOT IN ADVANCE GUYS!!!

Get at least a 80+ bronze certified Seasonic or Corsair. Get a modular one for better cable management and better airflow. You may take a look at the new Corsair RM series PSUs. Those are 80+ Gold certified and have flat, modular cables are are darn cheap.

On that list? I'd go for the NZXT Hale. But Sea Sonic or Enermax OEM PSU's are advisable. I'm sure there are more than one supplier where you're from.

550W Bronze rated is enough.

I see, of all of the PSUs listed here this one ( COOLER MASTER I700 700W 80 Plus Bronze $ 1.984 ) has the best reviews all around, isn't CoolerMaster a good brand anymore?

Thanks for the help guys.

(About my supplier, there are other suppliers yeah, but this one it's a friend, i have ease of payment and other perks)

UPDATE: Going a little outside of my comfort zone i found these 2 for a good price, so i'll add them to the list:

I have not used any of the ones you listed, so I cannot recommend any of those. But, as I said, any good 80+ Bronze (I missed the word "particularly" when I said Seasonic or Corsair) is good-enough. Cooler Master is renowned for quality - amongst the names you listed. If you must choose from the list then CM would probably be the way to go, then NZXT maybe, but I'm not sure about NZXT's components/quality etc.

If the supplier is your friend, then ask him to get you a Seasonic or an RM-series Corsair (these are the only ones I have used, and can thoroughly recommend. Also, Enermax's own models are good too), or look elsewhere. No reason to make a bad investment on the most important part (which can screw up every other pc component) just for perky perks.
Good luck!

Edit:
After seeing your edit I thought I'd recommend the Seasonic M12II. But do check if it's "full" or "semi modular". There are both in the M12II range.

my recommendation is for either the Seasonic you added or one of the NZXT HALE 82 units.

I have a PS on your list. It's a CoolerMaster GXII 750w. It's powring 2 GTX 760 2GB at 1214/7600, an i5 2500K at 4.5GHz and 8GB of Kingston ValueRam 1333 at 1600. As you can see my system is heavily overclocked. Hell, even my monitor is overclocked (67Htz). I've had this PS for 3 years and it's serving me very well. I highly recommend it.

I've had great luck with COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M2 620W 80 PLUS BRONZE- Full Modular. The GXII750W would be a great choice too.
