i'm looking at psu's. pretty much everything under 60 bucks is trash. isn't there any company out there that makes a quality, inexpensive product?

OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

...and of course everything else to go with it. i'm doing this more for fun than anything. i was looking for a hobby that could put a little extra cash in my pocket. i got a case/psu combo from newegg and the case is awesome but the psu was trash. so i finally ordered a
Thermaltake TR2 W0379RU 500W ATX 12V v2.2
price tag on this was 59.99 + 9.50 shipping. so almost 70 bucks for a power a decent power supply

You get what you pay for. And wattage can be deceiving. A cheap high watt PSU typically perform worse than an expensive low-watt PSU. I'm currently using a relatively pretty pricey Tagan 500W PSU. I could never get my system to run on a generic 800W PSU.
