Hello looking for a dependable PSU for the following build:

Athlon II X4 635 Propus &ASUS M4A785TD-M EVO
ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner
Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA
Kingston ValueRAM 2GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600)
Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

These are a few I am considering: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submi...|17-371-033^17-371-033-TS%2C17-151-072^17-151-072-TS%2C17-139-017^17-139-017-TS%2C17-153-023^17-153-023-TS%2C17-153-113^17-153-113-TS

From what I've read the Corsair Antec and SeaSonic are good brands, not sure about the Thermaltake they just happened to be in the newegg email sales. Please help me choose a decent PSU! Thanks in advance.

You will not find a "dependable" PSU for under $50. It is MUCH, MUCH worth your while to go ahead and spend about $170 on a Corsair/Coolermaster PSU.

I'd go for the corsair builder's series; has the highest single 12v rail. Are you using onboard graphics or a separate card?

Onboard graphics, this is just gonna be a work computer running some accounting/tax software and web browsing mainly.

Builder CX430w will do you well, but this would be better IMO.
