    I am putting together a small home server using some parts I have going unused and just need a psu and some memory now (2x1gb). Been thinking of getting a Antec Earthwatts 380 watt psu but is there any others that are more suitable or better in this price range? Spec will be AMD 4850e, GA-MA78GM-S2H, 1 optical and 3 WD Greens 1tb.
    Am keeping a eye on MM for the memory.

    I take it you want it to be quiet? The PicoPSU is silent... you can get other passive one's but they're quite expensive. BeQuiet do a Pure Power model that's 350W, can be had for £30. 80 Plus (up to 84%), peaks at 400W and a PWM fan, 18A on Dual 12v Rails and is whisper quiet. What's not to like?

    I should of said in my original post that I will be building the server into a Sugo SG01. Did look at the Corsair but it seems to have long leads and that sort of put me off. That Bequiet looks decent but cant find anything about how long the wires are. Its a good price aswell.
