Do you consider CoolerMaster G450M a quality PSU?

Yes
Brands like Corsair, Superflower, EVGA, CoolerMaster, Seasonic, even Thermaltake are considered to be reliable brands
Edit: Some more that I remembered now
Antec, Bitfenix, Fractal Design, XFX, Be quiet

Agreed, but I would veto the CX series from Corsair and anything from thermaltake, I've heard far too many horror stories from those two

I would personally suggest something along the lines of This. Reasonably priced and not too tight wattage wise

*Some models.

Both Corsair and Coolermaster are guilty of selling crap PSUs in the past. Thermaltake's PSUs seem to be 90% junk as well.

From all the available choises in the 450W range, (talking model wise now and based off reviews) are the RM450 by Corsair
The G-450 by seasonic (although a bit too expensive)
The 450W Golden Ggreen hx by Superflower
