Steer clear from the junk ones in this list.
Achieve
Allied
Aspire
Codegen
CoolMax
Cyberzone
DEER
Dragon
Eagle Tech
EYE-T
Greenline
HIPRO
JSP-tech
KingStar
Kingwin
L&C
Linkworld
Okia
Orion
PowerMagic
PowerUp
Powmax
Q-Tec
Raidmax
Rosewill
Silverstone
Skyhawk
Startech
Turbolink
Vantec
Win

As for the good ones they are Antec, Thermal take, Sparkle, Seasonic, OCZ,

For this rig I recommend the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371016 which was pretty heavy which is a good sign.

This one I had for 3 years no issues. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817341016

They have a 600 watt version too which is good.

The bad ones I listed are light as a feather and will burn up easy.

    first of great looking system exept the card sucks

    main reason 128 bit god that horrible picture this thats like getting a bmw and then sticking a kitty in as a engine the cpu 4 core i5 3570k is all anyone really needs for gaming

    now 256 bit yes 1gb is fine for a decent sized monitor of 20 inch the 256 bits will make the game look brilliant and its alot faster

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121446

    http://www.hwcompare.com/12827/geforce-gt-640-ddr3-vs-geforce-gtx-560/

    560 wins beats it around the head yes its a bit more pricey but if you want to game this is the cheapest card that will allow you to do that

    also cheaper ram

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313080

    psu that will work 750w
    this will last a good few years exact round about 4 before giving up your suppose to change them every 3 years or so

    Hmm! using a server processor in the build , a good corsair or coolermaster would do for the specs , a 600 watt one and i would upgrade the graphic card to a gtx 660 ti or higher
