Default Good PSU to recommend?

Hi There,

I am currently looking to upgrade to a new PSU for stability and to invest in a better brand.

My specs are:

CPU AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.4Ghz
AMD Radeon HD 6770 1GB
HHD x 2 (1TB & 500GB)
1 x Gigabyte LAN Adapter
5 PC Fans
1 DVD R/W Drive.

My budget is 60.

something like a PSU from corsair's CX series. the 600W should do just fine.
MOBO: Asus Maximus 6 Hero - GPU: Gigabyte GTX 980ti xtreme - CPU: I7-4770K - PSU: Corsair AX760
RAM: Corsair Vantage 2x4GB - SSD: Samsung 840 Evo 512GB - Case: NZXT H440

Here's a snippet from my PSU ordering email.

[...]It must be one of the following brands and have a single 12v rail. 

Stick with trusted brands... PSU catastrophes can turn into entire PC catastrophes. The "Single 12v rail" comment; there's a lot of debate around the sustainability and consistency of multiple 12v rails, but those possible flaws do not exist with single 12v rail systems. On the product description or tech specs, it will specify how many 12v rails there are.
Humans are the only creatures that won't live up to the their potential. Give everything your all. When you die, die on E.

So I ask you, what do you intend to do now?
