Well, I'm in a bit of trouble trying to get a good 750W PSU for not more than $65. My PC specs are:
CPU: Intel Xeon X5650 4.4 GHz (will OC when I buy the PSU)
RAM: 16GB DDR3 1.5V
GPU: GTX 780 Ti or 980 Ti if it goes cheap in December
And I'll maybe put 2 HDDs in RAID 1.
I was thinking about a Keep out! 750W PSU, but I don't know if it's good.

Good quality 750W PSU for $65 is pretty hard to find.

You also don't need 750W PSU, that's good one http://pcpartpicker.com/product/h3FXsY/evga-power-supply-220gs0650v1

That Keep out! PSU really has good name, stay away from it.

What do you mean by "good name"?

Are you sure a 650W PSU will do the job, even taking the Xeon to 1.44V for the Overclock? Would my Corsair VS 650 do the job too?

Not so good quality so keep out of it :)

VS650 should be enough too, not high quality but still.

Was thinking about that joke too! Their name describe their work, apparently :). Alright, I'm actually thinking of giving the Corsair PSU to my brother, so are there good 650W PSUs in the same maximum price I told you about, ~$65?

There are no good quality PSUs for $65 according to Pcparticker.com.

Is suggest you go with that Evga. Or if $65 is maximum, then medium quality http://pcpartpicker.com/product/nB3RsY/seasonic-power-supply-s12ii620bronze and http://pcpartpicker.com/product/2tckcf/xfx-power-supply-xfxts550w

I'm sorry to piss you, I tried finding PSUs using pcpartpicker.com right now, it really is hard. Sure, you can get links, but I recommend using Chrome, to translate the sites. Links to frequented RO shops: http://www.emag.ro http://www.altex.ro
The money used on those shops is called "lei" or "RON". 4 lei=1$. So, $65≈250 lei.

From those options and price limitation, I think it's http://www.emag.ro/sursa-seasonic-s12ii-520-bronze-atx12v-520w-sass520gb/pd/DR1YK2BBM/

Are you sure that the 520 PSU will be able to power a 780 Ti and a Xeon X5650 at 1.44V? I don't necesarily need a high quality PSU, medium is perfect for me. The looks of the PSU don't matter as well, as the case I'll get has a PSU room, so it'll be hidden.

Wouldn't this do a bit better? http://www.emag.ro/sursa-segotep-raynor-power-650w-650w-atx-2-31-pfc-activ-rp650-segotep/pd/DZ38JBBBM/?ref=similar_right-1_5

Quite sure as power consumption should stay under 430 watts at full load to CPU and GPU same time.

No, dual +12V rails. Plus active PFC AND 220V only (wtf). Seasonic is better.

It won't stay under 430W, at least that's how outervision PSU calculator says. And Tech YES City's similar build consumed 700W from the wall, tho he used a 970 instead of a 780 Ti. And he used a 630W cheap PSU...

Can you please provide me a link that says that Keep out! PSUs are bad, or review?

Never heard of this maker, but 9 people (8 on eMag and 1 on PCGarage) gave the PSU 5 stars. Njoy Woden 750 is the name of the PSU that I just found. Is it truly a good PSU?
