My System Specs

Default

I like my antec- don't find it loud, and take great comfort in knowing my voltages are right and there'd minimal ripple- especially since switching from the OCZ- I'm not sure what causes ripple, but I have a CM extreme power 550W here that weighs about twice as much as the OCZ and if PSUs are anything like amplifier/receivers, then light weight means distortion

EDit- to clarify, I was referring to the older OCZ GameXStream- not the newer PCP&C ones

Gigabyte Odin Pro 800W. It is one of the most overlooked PSUs out there right now even though it is a great performer with a very good price
what about the cable length on this PSU? it is a little pricey but

Default perhaps this one too?

Silencer 750 Quad~$188
New Silencer® 750 Quad Power Supply


Enaberif recommended this one earlier in the post. Ive been thinking about getting one to give lots of headroom for ocing a quad and a GTX and later cards. Should fit your needs too.
