Default Is this the best PSU on the market?

It's the top one

I'm buying a PSU and I want the best one available. I know that the PSU is like one of the main things on a gamers pc system.

That's not the best PSU...the best ones are at least 700W...like the OCZ GameStream.

There are just about no personal computers that require that much power. Only ones with a sh*t load of harddrives and optical drives.

The one you listed is really good. There is also this seasonic which is very good

I would probably go with the one you already listed though because its modular which I really like.
