Hello everyone, hope you're all going well!

I've been looking to build my own PC these last weeks and I have come to this build now: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/l1td

However, I may have more money than I expected to build my next PC, so instead of using my old PSU, I'm looking to buy a new one.
I would like to have a PSU with 700 watts atleast and around 100$.

What do you suggest me to get?

Thanks.

Snag yourself either a Seasonic X650 or X750. Each was just $90 and $100 respectfully last week. No better psu exists.

I can't find a Seasonic X650 or 750. Theres a 660 and a 760, but they are a bit expensive and they aren't on Newegg/Tigerdirect :/.

Can you suggest me something else?

I won't. Friends don't let friends use anything but an X650/X750.

X650 = $117
X750 = $135
with promo code EMCJNHD229

Eh, what?...

Whatever. I just don't find anything with Seasonic for x650 and x750 on the site. I'll just wait for other suggestions :).

ABSOLUTELY! I own both and they are phenomenal PSUs! I didn't have any trouble finding them...

THERE! For some reason it wasn't showing up in the picpartpicker website.

Here it is: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/lwJN

Is it the right one?

^ That's the one. If you can grab that at a good price (imho, about $100-125), then I'd call it worth it. If not, the Corsair you indicated for $80 sounds good imho, too :)
