Default Power supply

quick question...
I have noticed that there seems to be multiple sites with which power supplies are sold with prices matched up accordingly... UNTIL i reach approx. 800 watts... then the price decreases dramatically.
no idea why? any suggestions?

600 watts + $64
620 watts + $135
650 watts + $99
720 watts + $185
750 watts + $169
800 watts + $110

It's probably a generic brand, one that's a lot less reliable and just not as good.

For example, the 750 watt one is a Thermaltake, which is a pretty reliable brand. Judging by the fact that it doesn't list a brand for the 800 watt, it's probably some crappy no-name power supply.
