No, you're right. Ultra PSUs for the most part are garbage.

You'd be better off with this: Newegg.ca - Antec NEO ECO 400C 400W Continuous Power ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

I am sure this is a decent PSU (hopefully since its corsair and it will be better than the others you chose so far), but the new 430w corsair (I have read) is inferior to the older 400w.

Also +1 for the antec neo eco as a good choice to add as a possible.
