I am looking for a PSU with at least 400 watts + a 30A 12V rail for my ATI Radeon 5770.

I found a few, and i need your opinions on which may be best for my computer. If you find any better ones, please say. (Tigerdirect.ca only please)

#1 - Corsair 400W PSU

#2 Ultra 650W PSU

#3 Ultra 600W PSU

#4 Cooler Master Extreme 500W PSU

#5 OCZ 600W Pro PSU

I know the OCZ will run my graphics card like a dream, but i'm wondering if any of the others will be good enough, cause i don't trust mail-in rebates very much.

Wheres the Antec or Seasonic PSUs? No thermaltakes either? The Corsair is fine, not sure what OCZ line is still good. Just thinking you might have looked at to few companies. Check out the three mentioned, see what else is available.

Ultra LS600 is a 500W PSU. That 600W comes from its PEAK rating - not continuous.
I couldn't find any review on the Ultra LSP 650W

Here is a review on theOCZ ModXStream Pro 600 and Corsair 400CX

I don't know if the Thermaltake TR2 is what 4745454b when he suggested Thermaltake.
On the Thermaltake website here is the Awards & Reviews 'brag page' for the TR2.
Compare that to the Thermaltake Toughpower 575 page. This is what you like to see from a MFGR.

I think that OCZ is now marketing 4 PSU lines. One is pretty good; one is OK. The other two? Well, I wouldn't put them into your computer, let alone mine.

And like 47, I just cannot remember which one is which.

A 5770 only needs about 7 amps at 12 volts. If you know that you are never going to CrossFire or upgrade the video card, I'd go with the Corsair 400CX.
