    i was wondering which power supply was better in terms of noise and cooling...do you guys think that the silenx450 psu gets hot cuz it is made so quiet? Cuz if it does get that hot...i would rather just sacrifice like 6db to get a better cooled pcpcooling psu. Do you think 400 watts will be enough for an amd64 3200 with a x800 pro? thanks.

    You didn't spec out the whole system, but you aare starting out with some heavy gear and I imagine it will include maybe a gb of ram, at least 1 7200rpm drive, 1 or more optical drives, etc.. I would say that a 400w would be a minimum. I would choose a PC Power and Cooling 510 Deluxe or an Antec Trupower 480 and not worry about any noise. If you feel you must limit noise, I would chose the PCP&C Silencer. You still have to plan for case fans, hsf, vid card fan, possibly NB fan, etc.. Hard to make a monster rig, keep it quiet, and get the best performance out of it. It will take a lot of time and effort.
