Default what is a good quiet PSU for my HTPC

I put together my HTPC and as it is I have to use this noise PSU I am looking for something quieter and at the same time I am going to pickup a 4350 Hd Vid card so I am thinking that the PSU doen't need to many watts
any suggestions?

I have 3 and I would say they're quiet not silent. But yeah you can't go wrong with Corsair or Enermax.

Yeah my bad, nothing is silent really but they are very quiet. Nexus is known for quiet fans so the PSU should be good but Corsair is quiet and good performance.
