it's my first build and i already have all of the parts at my house, but i've gotten word that the power supply that i have at the moment (RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply) is not good and may break my other components. so i wanted to know what would be a good bang for my buck power supply?

Seasonics or Corsair are highly regarded here, with Seasonics being the most recommended brand.

Seasonic, Cosair, and XFX have good quality cpus. Seasonic has a whole "gamers series" of psus which are very good also. Corsair has cheap yet efficient and quality psus. And XFX makes cheap quality psus too. Seasonic is recommended for their efficiency.
