Hi, I'm looking for a 650W or more power supply. I found a bunch in my price range but I don't know how to judge them on quality. They all look the same to me. I put together charts showing the lowest price for each PSU. If you could take a look and let me know what your choice would be and why, I'd really appreciate it. I prefer better quality over lower price, but up to a point. So you could let me know what's the best value (quality for the price), and/or what's the best quality. Thanks!

Not on your list, but this or the 750W version would also be good options:

I use the 750W one and can confirm they are great. Not sure why nobody else here seems to...
Agree it is a good unit but it only comes with 5 year warranty when equal quality and priced units of same size carry 10 year warranty. Ruled it out for me when was buying last time.

Never had any problems with them... and honestly, computers don't really last that long for me anyways. Especially not with gaming computers needing more and more energy each year. So it's not really an issue in my book and frankly, other components have far shorter warranty periods anyways...

Ended up going with the Super Flower Leadex III Gold 750. The Phantex and Seasonic 650s were sold out (where there was a good deal on them) so I figured I'd step up to a 750 because it wasn't much costlier than the other 650s.
