Have a look here, its kinda outdated now but it will help. I run 24/7 rigs and I usually like to over-provision, so like 850 watt for 600watt load kinda deal, really helps in the long run.

evga g2/g3 or anything higher is good, and has a really long warranty.

 

just look for something with 10+ yr warranty because that's usually an indication of a pretty good unit

I only use EVGA power supplies these days, never had one fail and they always have top notch customer support. I once bought one online that was missing an EPS cable, I emailed them and they sent me a whole second set of cables! For Free!

I have/had Corsair AX760 and AX860, both are fine for such tasks. One is still in my current server, other one was in an old server, which I sold.

Continuous means just that. Just get a decent, fairly high end PSU, if you want to be absolutely sure.

Picture a venn diagram.

 

One circle says "cheaper".  The other says "lasts forever".  Now pull those two circles apart from one another so they do not touch. 

 

If the PSU is from a reputable brand, rated at continuous output, rated to operate at maximum output at 50°C, you should be able to get 5 years out of it under 24/7 operation.

 

If you get a server PSU, it'll be loud... but it will last twice as long.

Depends on the load.  The higher the load, the greater the power density (typically), the higher heat, etc.

Any good quality PSU.

Where do you live?
What do you have available??

...and dies because of overheating and is totally overpriced because its a niche.

And with modern good quality fans they should survive the PSU anyway.

And the PSU lasts longer because it gets less hot...

...for the first one and they tend to be rather loud and not really something special...

That's bullshit because Warranty != Quality...

And some high quality units sometimes doesn't have the best warranty, so you can't conclude anything with the Warranty because its also possible that the manufacturer of the unit planned for the failure rate and you paid for it - and they expect that many people might either forget the warranty, loose the proof of purchase or sell the PSU along the way - wich voids the Warranty...

 

And as Jon said, you have to pay more for good PSU.
