Hi there! Don't normally ask questions frequently but I would like some input on finding a great power supply.

Recently my brother needed a power supply since his got toast which I told him not to use bundled power supplies with cases, if your wondering the brand was called ALLIED. I decided to give him my power supply that is only one month old, its a Corsair CX-430 which will work with his build just fine since he doesn't use any graphics card.

I have been considering switching back to this power supply (I owned this one before):
http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=62331&vpn=VP450&manuf...

Now my true query is, are there any other power supplies that you guys know of that is on sale as well? And is equal or better in terms of quality and wattage (looking to keep it below 550 watts, may upgrade video card soon to HD 7850 or HD 8850 in the future). Now I really am focused on getting a power supply lower than 500 watts since I may not even get the video card upgrade since I am getting 30+ fps in all games I play on high settings with the HD 7770 (1600x900).

Here is the rest of my build:

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition (stock clocks, 3.2ghz)
Crucial Ballistix 2x4 GB Modules, 1333mhz
Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000.D
Asus Radeon HD 7770
Antec Kuhler H2O 620
Total of 3 120mm case fans (two on the radiator and one in the front of the case)
and some LED Strips....about 4.

Now some other questions related:
How much does shipping to Brampton, Ontario cost from NCIX?
How much power does the Kuhler 620 draw?

Thanks so much for reading my post, and will make sure to pick a best answer! I appreciate all answer :) 

*Need Canadian links only, I prefer ordering from within Canada since I am giving this power supply tonight and need the new power supply asap. I have a spare Cooler Master power supply (that is terrible) but am willing to give it another go temporarily until I get the new power supply.
