Generally anything from Corsair(non-CX) series, OCZ, Pc Power and Cooling, Seasonic, XFX, Antec will do you just fine. All are quality manufacturers, and most of the time you can find a good deal on one of them. I'd also suggest you not buy anything rated at less than a bronze efficiency, although it's not really worth paying more to upgrade from bronze to silver/gold/platinum either. For example, right now I'd buy:

Same price as some good bronze units, and you get Silver and semi-modular cables.

You can power that with a 550w easily.

Swordkd, would that 750W psu be compatible with my mobo? And also Blackbird, I am upgrading from a 430W that runs my build currently. I am also planning to add a new graphics card later which is why I want a 750W psu. I just want to know how I can tell whether the parts are compatible etc.

Thank you so much. What graphics card would you suggest? I am looking for a Gpu under $200. I want to have a bit of an upgrade from my Powercolor 7770. I am looking at some of the new radeon cards and some GTX 650 cards. If you have any suggestions, I am all ears :)

I would suggest getting the R9-270X, It's a great card for 200 dollars.

Only thing is that my MOBO has 1 pci express slot. No crossfire for me

The 7870 can run BF4 on Ultra 1080p with an average of 50frames per second giver or take 10 on different situations. The R9-270X is basically a 7870 overclocked so it should have higher frames and then you can overclock the 270X to reach even higher ones. In the end, I would suggest getting the R9-270X as it's the best 200 dollar card there is right now.
