Any brands to recommend or to shy away from?

Antec, Thermaltake, Enermax, OCZ, Corsair, Coolermaster - All are good.

I'd avoid anything you don't recognize, or anything offering high wattage for too cheap.

So like a lot of ten 550W PSUs for $99.99 would be questionable then?

I'm not your I understand that, 10 PSUs for $100.00? Yes, buyer beware on that.

However a single 550W PSU for $100.00 sounds quite reasonable. What's the make?

To give something of a reference, I very recently purchased an Antec 650W for $125.00 CDN. And I'd consider Antec to be pretty much as good as you're going to get.

I don't recognize most of the list, however I will disagree with Thermaltake being on there.
