    FSP Group is excellent to superb at a price a bit lower than others. Antec if you do not go too cheap. One of the PC Power and Cooling models if you have a nice fat allowance, CoolerMaster, Coolmax, Zalman, Sparkle...
    Get at least 450 or 500 watts if you can afford it, but remember it is the Amperage not the watts that make the difference.
    I love FSP Group and Sparkle... and have never had any of them fail... right behind them is the Zalman then the Antec.
