    Have a Hyper 425W running an opty 165 at 2.7Ghz an x1800xt two sata drives two opticals and 2 gig memory no probs.
    Have also had it running using a Hyper 350W.

    Some people seem to have issues with Hypers but not me. Will depend on budget but look at Hyper Seasonic Tagan Sparkle etc.

    You can't go wrong with (in no particular order) Tagan, Seasonic, FSP Sparkle & or Enermax. Invest in a decent PSU now & won't have to worry about changing/upgrading for a couple of years. Recommend* :D

    * because, maybe might want to go SLI? Besides, that PSU should last you a couple of years :)

    Seasonic may be find for most, but I wouldn't recommend it with an A8N32 - I got one yesterday, and the machine acts as if its shorting on something even when run outside of the case. My new Tagan works a treat though (see here for some stuff about Seasonics and Asus A8- series motherboards).
