    How about the Revoltec ChromusII series?
    its silent,450watt,and you only have to plug the wires in you need.
    its a pretty good powersupply!

    I just got Thermaltake PurePower 500 Watt TWV. It is modular psu and I think it's SLI ready as it also comes with 2 PCI-e slot. On 100 % load: +3.3 = 3.20 +5 = 4.90 +12= 12.05. I run it on OCed Intel 2.66 @ 3.4 LGA 775.

    If you could get it in Canada, I recomend this PSU.

    Check out the OCZ Modstream. It's quieter than my hard drives, you only have to connect the cables you want, and although I haven't tested it, it's supposed to be quite stable.

    Seasonic power supplies are supposed to be really good, one forum I read quite a lot is at www.silentpcreview.com, and everyone on there loves them, they're very stable and very quiet.

    Seasonic S12 series are very good PSUs, even though S12-430W contains old circuitry - 500W and 600W models contain new.

    I suggest going for Antec or OCZ. They are better brands I believe and they are a little bit cheaper. I have the OCZ Modstream and it supplies 520 Watts constantly and goes up to 610W at peak. On top of the great juice it gives on the dual 12V lines, it is quite as hell. I had to put my hand over the fan to check to see if it was on. Def. a great choice.
    Here is the specs for it:

    I'm running a Hyper 580, 630 peak, very nice modular psu and its very quiet. another bonus is that it has auto switch from 110-220v.

    If you could post your price range that would help us out, but I would personally recomend the OCZ PowerStream. For your application a 420w would do just fine. However a 520w has slightly better amperages if you'd like to keep it through future upgrades.
