    Silverstone and power pc and cooling have better PSU's but it all depends on price.

    Funnily, I've just had to order a new PSU (i know mines been going down the pan for past few months).

    I got lucky though and got a 2nd hand one from a mate which has only 7months usage (he only upgraded so he could use SLi as the single rail one isn't certified for SLi).

    I've got an Enermax Liberty 500W modular PSU that has been absolutely great. Highly recommend.

    There's a 600W version, but I decided I didn't need to go that high.

    It is if you want to keep cable clutter out of the way by eliminating unused power cables. Reducing cable clutter improves airflow through a case.

    I want to keep my case as clutter free as possible so maximum cooling is allowed.

    here are the two I have been looking at http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-023-OC&groupid=701&catid=123&subcat=148

    I've always used Antec power supply, I never had any issues with them and I find they are pretty budget oriented PSU's. I am using the Antec Smart Power 2.0 500W PSU right now and have no issues with it.

    Their good psu's might not be the best but very cost effective and last quite a bit, at least for me and every time I bought one.
