    how much juice do you need, and do you care about extra goodies (quiet, led fans, wrapped cables...)? My personal preference in PSUs is Antec, but there are several good ones around.

    i should tell you what i have and what I'm plannig to get.
    What I have:
    Case:Chenbro X pider
    Motherboard:Intel D875 pbz

    Planning (in other words "waiting for my nex paycheck):
    P4 2.4 or 2.6 GHz 800 fsb
    Video card: aow ati radeon 9700
    Soun card: still not sure
    RAM:probably some Crucial sticks.

    Now the thing is I'm not really sure about a ceratin brand.
    I read on a review that the antec true 480W has a lot of heat isues due to the noise control that they use.
