Antec PSU's are okay. Decent, but they don't have much.

Seasonic, FSP Group, OCZ, PowerPC & Cooling, Zippy and a whole bunch of other companies make REALLY nice ones. FSP Group has the AX500 PSU for $89.99 at the Egg. It's really nice...completely sleeved with EZ-Molex connectors and the build quality is very nice.

The wires are sleeved in strechable nylon coverings. What it does is make the wires easier to manage, airflow is slightly improved as all the wires aren't splayed all over the place, and the most important thing is that your PSU will look nice and pretty, instead of resembling some colored vomit from drunk Teletubbies on a hangover.
