Recommend me some PSUs

Location: Australia

I have made a part list already and am ready to order all of my parts. However, the PSU currently listed on here isn't available from the vendor I would like to order from.

My part list: https://au.pcpartpicker.com/user/Yuxie/saved/#view=BgGWGX

I will be buying my psu from here: http://www.msy.com.au/qld/varsitylakes/ specifically because I live relatively close to the store and it is cheaper to pick the parts up rather than having it being delivered to me.

Please recommend me some good quality psus, roughly priced around $100. I will be doing some light overclocking and would prefer to have more watts then required in my current build for future improvements.

Yeah, I was looking at the 650 variant of this but I was told a while back that these PSUs aren't really suited for overclocking? Or was I misinformed?

No you werent... BUt the newer CXM450,550 and 650 are another story. The CXM 650 is an excellent choice.

Ohh alright. Thanks for that info. So the psu linked above is a good choice. Or is it actually named CXM 550. Not CX550M?
