Need help finding a cheaper PSU

So, I've ordered most of my parts for my build, but I really don't want to spend $80 on a 550w PSU. I just need help maybe finding one that's cheaper, but still decent. I'm fine with Semi Modular. Any help is needed, thanks.

Here is the PSU I originally planned on buying: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Type Item Price
Power Supply EVGA SuperNOVA GS 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply $79.98 @ Mac Mall
Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts
Total $79.98

$80 is good for a really great 550 watt psu. something with no compromises that is. this is the cheapest decent 550 watt psu and it's $70.

the one for $80 is a far better one.
