My Dynex 520W passed away earlier this week. I replaced the Dynex with Corsairs GS800 PSU only to have to go through 3 of them because they all had this issue were it made this really loud noise, irregardless of what suggestions I followed from technical support to fix it. Apparently this is a common thing for Corsair GS series PSU's to make this noise. Anways, I would like to hear from the audience about what would be a good recommendation for my computer. The current set up is as follows:

AMD FX-6100 x6 3300MHZ 6 core (socket AM3+)
Seagate 1TB HD 7200 RPM
Kingston 8GB DDR3 1600MHz
ASUS M5A97 motherboard
MSI 7770 video card

have you got a budget for the psu?
id say something like Seasonic SS-550RM 550W Modular http://www.scan.co.uk/products/550w-seasonic-g-550-modu...
I'm kind of guessing you may have lost faith in corsair but they are good power supplies so something like Corsair CXM Builder series 600W Hybrid Modular http://www.scan.co.uk/products/600w-corsair-cxm-builder...
an 800w psu is overkill for your setup 500w and up would be plenty even with overclocking

I have a $130USD limit. thank you guys for the suggestions so far. I do not plan on ever overclocking my machine because it plays all the games I have with no issues.
