    I have a 350W power supply

    P4P800 SE
    P4 2.8 1G cache
    1GiG Dual Channel
    BFG 6600 GT OC
    2 EIDE HD
    2 SATA HD
    1 Plextor DVD writer
    Audigy 2
    Firewire card
    3 case fans

    Suggestions on power supplies? I'd like to make the setup look clean as well.

    I own one and IT IS FANTASTIC. The best part is that it plays well with a future upgrade.

    i'd prefer to get a psu with modular cables

    most psu these days have a load of floppy connectors which just aren't used anymore
    not only that, bu things are moving to SATA, and most psu only have 2 or 4 connectors for sata, plus the old floppys

    with a modular you can swap out for reg molex, sata or w/e

    it's a better idea, but i dunno about the $
    also not sure on noise factor on those units...

    Unfortunately not.

    I ended up geting an Enermax Noisetaker 420W from the store I always go to. I had stated that I was replacing a 350W PSU but it was actually an Enermax 300W power supply.

    Is "need" really the issue here?
