I would generally not recommend OCZ, because I had customers coming back with quite a few RMAs. I haven't used one from OCZ personally, so I can't really give a respectable suggestion. I would suggest going for something like the Corsair AX650 if you're not going to be using much power. Seasonic X-560 and up is another line of PSUs to look for. Enermax have been making great PSUs.

OCZ is really going into the SSD and PSU marked. They might be alot better now then b4. Ive seen several psu's from them with gold brand, so thats promising. Anywas, i would suggest Corsair, Seasonic and CM before you go OCZ.

Yup those are the definite choices I would go with for PSUs. Silverstone makes some decent PSUs also. I have a Strider Plus, the modular version, and although it doesn't have the on/off switch, it's still a great unit.

My BeQuiet PSU has been brilliant and they are highly rated, but not very popular because of other big name brands. They have some 80+ gold rated PSU's (Dark Power range) and in the 3 months I've had mine it has been nothing but awesome .

Be Quiet! PSUs are fantastic. Even the new Pure Power series comes with the Silent Wing fan and has the antivibration properties/modular cabling system.
