    I would go with one from the Seasonic or Enermax range.. I've used both and they both make good quality PSU with solid rails:)

    cool thanks!

    Ooo, that Seasonic is £90! Ouch! They could have stuck a blue led in it for that price! There again the Enermax is over £90 too! I guess I need that much power though.

    If you want near complete silence, go Seasonic.

    If you want slightly louder but modular, go Enermax.

    Won't be disappinted, got a Seasonic S12 600W in my current machine, 'tis just fantastic, can't hear it.

    Only not considering it for my new machine because of non-modular and P180-unfriendly cable lengths.

    Cheers buddy. I absolutely love my Antec True Power 480w, you can hear a pin drop (almost!) so its nice to know I won't be suffering with loud fans when I upgrade to a dual core and larrrrrge Nvida.

    If you got the money, Go for the Seasonic 600W. Good efficiency so will help reduce on power usage. Also its quiet, and as far as power supplies go, it not bad looking. :)

    Sorry to hijack topic, but is there a PSU with P180-friendly cable lengths that is quieter than the Enermax Liberty?

    Enermax Liberty 620W looks good, I changed my order to that today and I'm glad.

    Also i'm 90% sure the seasonic has a 3pin fan inside, so you can always replace the fan if you wish. Take care though ;)
