Antec, Enermax and other good brand names, rate their power supplys differently then the el'cheapo (chinese) ones..... trust me... I see it every day.
If you paid $30 for your power supply you paid too little.
I'd spend no less then $50 on it.

Yes, the brand makes a huge difference. Foxconn is a good brand that is VERY affordable, as Antec, Enermax, Vantec and such are more expensive. Raidmax is in the middle as far as price, and they are good PSU'* too.
