Reputable but budget power supply?

A Corsair CX450M is probably the best price/performance/quality right now. There's a lot of misinformation regarding power supplies and a lot of people saying things are great or terrible based entirely off one experience with a brand.

Hello!

I am planning my first PC build as a Christmas present to myself this year. I've budgeted carefully to make sure I have roughly enough for the type of system I want, but I've hit an obstacle.

I was quite happy to chuck a cheap Corsair psu into my list of parts to buy (https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/79CQ4C) but then I had an epiphany! The power supply is more important than you first think, and is easily overlooked.

I should probably ask my question now...

What I want is a power supply that is, y'know, decent, but I really need it to be no more than £60 (preferably less) but I don't want to risk my safety and the Internet is apparently super polarised on every single model I can find...with every forum post having disagreements about if it's good or if it absolutely sucks! What I'd really like is some kind of list laying out the series of a brand that is decent and yet still affordable. I've seen the pinned post with the tiers but am unclear on what tier is considered the bottom line for quality!

Thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings and any help you can offer!

Thanks! This has saved me a lot of time trawling through the Internet looking through people with a grudge complaining about the product.
