If you're buying a laptop or car or whatever else, do you look up the brand or the models?
There several companies making good power supplies, and more than that selling them since it's more convenient for many of the manufacturers to let other names sell and support the power supplies they produce. e.g. Corsair sells many quality power supplies, most of which are manufactured by CWT or Seasonic. However, you can often get a pretty much identical product sold by a competitor, sometimes for a lower price, that was manufactured by CWT or Seasonic with the same design/components/standards.
Are you really going to be using a 8400 GS or integrated HD 2000 graphics for a gaming computer? If yes, do you ever plan to upgrade that?
