Default best value for power supply.

I did the power supply calculator on the Antec web site. If this is accurate, and after adding the stuff i'm picking up tomorrow. my current PS is coming up short. And with the boxing day sales going on, I'm thinking this would be the best time to get something. As I'm getting 4GB more RAM for $40 and a 1.5TB for $50. and with all the other upgrades I've done. its almost a hole new computer.

just want to confirm that Antec, Corsair, OCZ, are good quality products.
I have an Antec supply now, its a 430w. I'm looking to get something in the 500w and up range, but getting the best value at the same time.

I'm looking at this one, Antec HCG-520 High Current Gamer 520W. Its $80 after instant rebate.

but there is a Cooler Master GX Series 650W going for the same price..<--this a good buy?

Asus M4A88T-M/USB3<>PhenomII X4 965e<>Asus ENGTX460
Seagate 320GB/1TB<>Win7 Ulti 64Bit<>Antec900
SyncMaster 2220WM<>HyperX 16gb<>Cooler Master 600W

Default Re: best value for power supply.

The Antec PSUs are fairly decent. Avoid OCZ right now if you can. Not sure who grinched their PSUs, but they suck lately. The Cooler Master PSUs are also fairly decent. I'd side with the Antec at this point simply because they've been in the PSU Game longer.
