    Pushing it a little.

    My vote is a 465 Enermax.

    You get what you pay for.

    Ermmm, no, really it is bad.

    Dont even THINK about a QTEC PSU.

    Use the search feature if you like, it'll throw up a few results as to why.

    Enermax, thermaltake, antec are supposed to be good, Im running a Aerocool atm, looks very nice, seems to perform well, only downside is it seems to have a very low 12v line, rated at 28A, performs well though

    I have an Antec in my Sonata case and it is excellent. Very very quiet which is my main requirement from a PSU (as long as everything turns on and runs!).

    I am looking at a quiet PSU from Enhance as my next purchase (£21 from tekheds.co.uk) and they seem pretty cheap, quiet and good quality.

    Summary of the usual answer to this question: - Thermaltake and Hiper seem to be good bang for buck, but if you've got the cash, play safe and go for Enermax/Antec...

    I say "play safe" because I've had trouble with hiper units, other posters may ass that hiper/thermaltake are just as safe as antec/enermax (may well be the case)

    If cash is a bit tight then hiper are good as well

    If you can afford it though then definately go down the enermax route
