It really depends on the OEM that OCZ used.. some of their psu hit the target.. and some simply failed...

OCZ does have the best cost/benefit ratio. You get a 750W power supply for around $100 before MIR. It's also 80 plus bronze certfied and it's confirmed by hardwaresecrets: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/OCZ-Fatal1ty-750...

If you can, I would really go for the Antec HCG 750W or something by XFX [Seasonic has manufactured some PSU for them]. Corsair and Seasonic are more pricey but are well worth it. Antec brings their "high standards" [they are reliable by the way haha] to the budget level. So either one of those brands won't be a bad choice.

The antec is a good unit but since you're on a $100-150 unit then I'll recommend quite a few units within that price ratio for you.

XFX PRO 750W (based on seasonic internals)

Corsair TX 750 V2 (based on seasonic internals)

Seasonic X 650 Gold (one of the best)

Corsair HX 750
