Note that your "450-watt" CoolMax provides up to 15 Amperes = 180 Watts on the +12 Volt rail. The "360-watt" SeaSonic that I linked provides up to 30 Amperes = 360 Watts on the +12 Volt rail.

Personally I'm using a CoolerMaster GX650 (the newer version), and I've had mixed experiences with my previous PSU brand, ACBel. The 620w ACBel I bought more than 6 years ago for my Brisbane machine still works fine and I've repurposed it already to an office PC whose PSU had died. However, we've had two other ACBel units die already after just about 2 or 3 years of use. So not sure I'll buy ACBel again. FSP and Seasonic look good, as well as Gigabyte, but I haven't really taken the time to read reviews because I'm not actually gonna buy yet. Other brands I have access to are Aerocool, Cougar, Corsaire, Thermaltake, Huntkey, Enermax, Silverstone, Antec (kinda pricey though), etc. So which of these would you actually trust?
