NCIX.com - Buy Silverstone Strider 750 Plus 750W Modular Power Supply ATX 24PIN 135mm Fan 60A 80+ Silver Black - ST75F-P In Canada.

Another good Option I think. This one has been quite the solid PSU For me.

Thanks for the responses, I think I'll probably go for the M12D and just keep my crappy BFG 650W and maybe just replace the 80mm fan.

All this hate on OCZ. I got a OCZ StealthXStream 500W powering my sister's rig and it's excellent. Oh I picked it up for around $30 AR almost a year ago. My system is powered by a OCZ GameXStream 600W and it's doing great as well.

Its not that they don't work, its just that they aren't in the same league as others PSUs being mentioned.

When you're running a 150-200W load, even a shitty PSU will generally not have any problems. Make no mistake, both of those OCZ PSUs are still low-quality units, and are not trustworthy for any load above 400W or so.
