Which of these PSU's is a better choice and are they good PSU's?

Antec VP-450 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Raidmax RX-530SS http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Do you guys have any better options for a PSU? I want to stay under 50 USD, modular is nice but not necessary.
This will be powering a budget build.
CPU- i5-3450
GPU- Radeon 7770
HDD- 500gb 7200 RPM
Mobo- Asrock Z77 Extreme4
RAM- 8GB Ripjaw

Given only a choice of the two PSU's, I would put the Antec in my machine.
If my only restriction was to stay below $50, I'd get the CORSAIR Builder Series CX430

Which will work as well as either of the two you've listed (IMO)

The antec is quite a lot better. I would not take the raidmax. The rosewill which bigcyco1 is quite a nice deal, and currently it is one of the best deals as for psu's under $50. It would have no problem powering your rig.
