I am shopping for a PSU to power this system:

i5 3570k
8 GB RAM
Extreme4 Z77 Mobo
500 GB HD

I only trust Antec, SeaSonic, and MAYBE Corsair. I was wonder how OCZ was too?

Here are a few PSU's I have picked, would like to know what you think.

Antec

If you can recommend one, please do. MODULAR ONLY, WON'T SPEND OVER $80 ON ONE

No mention of a video card in your specs and you have a 550w, a 600w and a 750w that you are looking at ?

Want to base your decision only on price ?

The XFX is the best of the bunch, but do you need that much power ?

Got the modular 550w antec, modular 600w OCZ and non modular 650w XFX (It was 750w, I didn't mean to choose that one).

Which is best?

A good quality 550 would be plenty for a single card
Personally I wouldn't call the Antec good quality, not bad but...............
The OCZ is another budget grade psu, not bad but..........
