I currently have the Corsair Builder 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply chosen. Are there any better psu's for that price?

I'm looking at having a $600 gaming rig at about 400w

XFX usually has some psu's for around $40, I couldn't recommend the build/CX series, they aren't good.

Avoid the CX like the plague. If you have to downgrade some other part and get yourself a decent PSU it's a very important piece of kit that most people overlook. I did and ended up having to shell out for a brand new PSU 1 month later with the CX.

The EVGA 500B is slightly better than the CX500.
