I see two very strong options at $60:
Rosewill Capstone 450W (non-modular, 80 pus gold; this unit is Super Flower Golden Green internally, so it's more or less on the same tier as Seasonic X Series and other high enthusiast class units):

Super Flower Golden Green is what NZXT Hale90, Kingwin Lazer Gold, Rosewill Lightning, Sentey Golden Steel, etc. use. There's a reason it was picked up by so many brands.
Antec TruePower New 550W (partially modular, mid-high end Seasonic design that's better than anything yet mentioned in this thread but the Capstone):

I second this.. you can't do better at those prices.. ^easily the best post in this thread.
