Wait..So the VS is the least quality PSU here? Or did I get it wrong? because it has really good reviews online so it cant be that badWhat system components do you have? Particularly CPU & GPU.
In increasing order of quality: (I may miss a couple)

The CX450 costs $20 after MIR. Go with that if you're on a tight budget.
Otherwise, the Seasonic Focus+ 550W is only $50 and is considerably better than the Corsair CX line.
Efficiency isn't a measure of quality though. Based on the review I found of the VS450 (older, orange unit), it actually a pretty decent unit in terms of performance and build quality. It's main downside is lower quality caps, which mean longevity could be an issue.If you're familiar with the 80 Plus Efficiency system. They don't even meet 80+ bronze, which like I said, the $20 CX450 can do.... 80+ Bronze is a pretty low bar these days.
