    I would suggest www.newegg.com. Look for the Antec TruePower or the Vantec slient stleath.

    I've been usin' Antec's 420-480W PSU's for quite some time now without any probs (the 420W model should be plenty for your setup).

    Also, if you're a crazy modder, I just got a ThermalTake 480watt Butterfly, and the thing is very nice. 550 peak watts, and a ton of amps to go around. It got great reviews at tweaktown, and comes with an 80mm blower fan, 5.25 rheostat, and the powersupply itself has 7 LEDs inside that fade in and out making a color light show. Its around 80 bucks at excaliberpc.com

    Almost everyone here kept on telling me to buy Antec, so I finally did. I'm amazed, becuase now my games don't hiccup anymore like they did when I used the cheap PSU's after they get hot.

    This is the one I went with. http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...=BROWSE&depa=0


    I also tried one of these for my new system and I must admit the display looks great, but I have yet to do any real video game testing with it. It seems stable so far though. http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...nufactory=1454

    Update 12-22-03: The Soyo PSU seems to do the job. I'd recommend it also.
