    OCZ Powerstream. I think this is the best choice. You can use enermax or antec.

    Stick to the decent brands, like Antec, Enermax, Thermaltake and Tagan and you should be fine. When I asked on these forums and looked on the internet, the Tagan 480W seemed the best for around £65.

    Have a look here for really good PSUs that are nice and quiet as well. Im not sure if they are the cheapest place but you can always buy it from another shop.

    Tagan and OCZ both made by Topower in China. There are some questions about the reliability of their PSUs.

    Thermaltake is not very good on the 12V rail in my experience.

    I like the Enermax and Antec PSUs. Alternatively I see you can now get PC&P over here. Americans swear by them.

    Have an Antec TrueBlue now, won't recommended though. Don't get me wrong, it's okay... But if u have the cash, buy an OCZ Powerstream, with adjustable rails. They ROCK! Especially if u intend to overclock!!

    PS: Tagan seem okay too...

    Had a Zalman 400W myself. Didn't provide enough juice for me, resulted in random reboots... But it might just be enough for u...
