Maybe Lepa G700-MA? It's a slightly cheaper Enermax Modu87+, so that's 80 plus gold rated and a bit cheaper at $100:
There's also FSP Aurum, but that's not quite as good. The 500W variant isn't that much cheaper anyway.
That one costs way more up here in Canada. $150
. I was also looking at those Aurums, I can get the 600W for $115, and the 700W for $130. Are they any good?
EDIT: Actually, I may just go for the Seasonic X650. It's got 8 SATA plugs, so I just need one splitter per port rather than using molexes on the other PSU's, and it's single rail. Not to mention modular, for ~7 over the Aurum 700WEdited by zouk52 - 6/15/11 at 7:10pm
