The ones crosse at should NEVER be purchased, I've never even heard of them. Numbers 1, 2, 3, 6 and 9 would be my top picks, with 2, 6, and 9 at the top. I think Silverstone and PC Power and Cooling make better high-end PSU's, while Antec makes great low-end ones (wattage-wise).

Of course this is just an estimation. As Duckie has said some model lines are bad and some are good. Silverstone's DA line is great, while their Zues line is so-so.

Seventeam and Topower (aka Tagan) are known manufactors. Some of Seventeam units are decent on the cheap. Topower tend to be blingy but are ok.... but there are better choices for the money.

Ah thank you for clearing that up. Tagan makes OK PSU's from what I heard, but as you said there are better for the money.

Just because you haven't heard about them, doesn't make them bad.

Pretty much, Acbel makes some decent stuff for Cooler Master (Real Power Pro 750W and down, iGreen, eXtreme Power Plus).

Don't you mean, stay away from the Cooler Master Extreme Power 600W? Everything with the model number RP-xxx is made by Seventeam and aren't very good. Seventeam can make some good PSUs but it is up to the rebrander (CM) to decide on how to build the PSU and a lot of times they get cheap and use substandard parts. That's what DuckieHo meant by some manufacturers can have a range of quality. Even if the manufacturer makes good stuff, it can be ruined with cheap parts. Or the other way, a manufacturer known for bad stuff can pop out a good one once in a while and it would be silly to just ignore it.

Just no. Very loud, too expensive and waaaaaaaaaaay overkill for this rig.

And to the OP, seems like you have just about everything that is available here. Since Corsair is available, how do the prices compare to the Silencer from PC P&C? They are both equal in terms of quality and performance so say between the Corsair tx650 and Silencer 610, get which ever one is cheaper.

Having not heard of something isn't excuse for not Googling.

While HEC surely isn't on same level with quality makers those HECs sold in Finland are known as good cheap PSUs.
Again already looking Vantec's pages is enough for me to avoid their PSUs. Weak 12V old designs and specs are told in way which makes it look like they don't exactly know what they're selling...

Would be interesting to know which one made component decisions in older Antecs, did Antec want cheapest possible components or was it OEM maker (CWT) who was in love with those Fuhjjyus changing otherwise decent PSU to time bomb.

That's a good question. Since Antec PSUs from Seasonic have some corners cut (Earthwatts, NeoHE, Truepower Trio), I would have to guess it's Antec doing it. I guess you would have to talk to Antec for real proof though.
