Just wanted to update the PSU sticky based on the current hardware...

Corsair AX series and Seasonic X series (currently only 400 and 460w fanless, 650w and 750w with fan) are current top of the pile.

PSU's with the DC > DC conversion for the lesser 5v and 3.3v rails are the way to go in terms of voltage regulation and efficiency (read as heat and cost of running the PC), and the PSU's with 95% plus of the capacity available to 12v are generally much better than before.

What I have said doesn't mean you should all run out and buy new power supplies as the old ones are now rubbish, and of course it also doesn't mean that anything other than what I have said is good. Anything by Corsair, Seasonic should be good, but Seasonic actually makes a lot of PSU's for people, so with a little research you can save a lot of problems down the road!

I've been using my Corsair hx850w for about 5 months now, and it's been fantastic. The currents never deviate more than 3%. And oh so quiet.

Well most psu companies just sell rebrands, like Gilly said too.

This list is fairly up to date too on what is what and what is good.
