I'm trying to buy all the parts on pccasegear.com, could you possibly recommend a PSU that they have? Here's the link to their PSUs: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=15_535&vk_sort=1

Quality. Many power supplies are made with cheap capacitors and/or unstable rails. This one is a higher quality then the one you went with, and you will be able to get more usage out of it. Here's a post listing the tiers of power supplies. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1804779/power-supply-unit-tier-list.html
