For crossfiring or a later gpu upgrade i would recommend this one

the evga 500w unit is average quality although inexpensive. the xfx pro 750 is an excellent power supply but more than overkill for the op's system.

you say good quality and cheaper.... the xfx 550w linked above is the best bang for buck and will work great.

For a system using a single AMD reference design Radeon HD 7850 graphics card AMD specifies a minimum of a 500 Watt or greater system power supply. The power supply should also have a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 27 Amps or greater and have at least one 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connector. Some of the non-reference design Radeon HD 7850 graphics cards require at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Sufficient Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) is the most critical factor.

Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) may require an additional increase to the maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock being attempted.

XFX TS Series 550W 80 PLUS Bronze (P1-550S-XXB9)
• OEM: Seasonic
• maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 45 Amps <===== more than enough to handle overclocking of the AMD FX 8350 CPU to 5 GHz and further overclocking of the graphics card
one 6-pin and one (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors
• Modular Output Cables: No
• Official Intel Haswell Compliance: Yes
• 80 PLUS BRONZE Efficiency Certification
• 5 Year Limited Warranty
