Default Which PSU is better?

I'm looking to buy a cheap PSU around $55 -$60. Which of these do you think is better? I am really looking into these 3 right now and I would like some opinions. Thanks.

ok those are all great choices but go with the thermaltake, because any of the chords that you dont need you dont have to use (they arent permantly plugged in) so you just pick the ones you want and just put the rest in some box so you dont have them restricting airflow in your case!

The FSP would be your best bet. It may be a 50W less than the other two, but it provides more amps on the 12V rails. They are also about the most reliable power supplies on the market.

The coolermaster is the best. It has the most amps (32) on the 12v dual rails.

WTF?? I was looking at the over voltage protection. Sorry I just skipped down through it without really paying much attention.
