    I think that power supplies are the epitome of "you get what you pay for" in the computer world.

    Seriously, go with Antec/Enermax/Seasonic/PC Power and Cooling. As DAN513 said, you get what you pay for.

    There are a few exceptions, such as ThermalTake's TR-2 430w, I run one and have used them in two builds. $40, excellent, stable, heavy, 24-pin, SATA, PCI-E graphics ready, Christ I love them to death.

    The rest of ThermalTake's PSU's aren't worth it though, in my opinion.

    OCZ makes pretty good psu for the price. If you want quality, maybe go tagan.

    Fortron is also really good.

    i made a bad move and searched for "quiet power supply" on ebay i got an okia 450 watt for like $15. i know it's not 450 true watts.
    anyways, it only came with 1 floppy power connector, and 4 ide device connectors...my previous one had double this...this made hooking up fans a pain the butt, because it would require splitters and stuff.

    long story short, i kept my old one and gave my dad's computer the ebay one

    Just echoing what everyone says, don't go cheap on your PSU

    PC Power & Cooling/Enermax/Sparkle/Fortron/Antec are typically the ones I'd personally recommend.
