Question another PSU question

It's been a while, and I've been looking for another PSU. I currently have a thermaltake 480W. But in a home with no rugs, and not a lot of noise going on, it very loud. (Sounds like a jet!)

I have been looking online and doing research, and it looks to me, like the best fanless ones are either coolmax or enermax. (antec makes a 350W, but I don't want that low,looking at the 480/500w range) Money is somewhat an issue, but as long as it's not super expensive, I'll bite.

But now the question is: (without getting into a pissing match or anything like such) opinions on those PSU's? any other suggestions for me to check out? Thanks in advnace...


[edit] Sorry... I forgot to mention that I was looking for a fanless, unless someone knows of one that is SUPER DUPER quiet!

The OCZ modstream uses a larger 120mm fan rather than most PSUs with 80mm fans. The fan is also internal and pulls air from below the PSU so the case somewhat muffles the noise so to speak. Definetely one to consider

Intel C2D E6320 / AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Gigabyte 965P DS3 / DFI nF4 Ultra-D
2GB OCZ Gold PC2-6400 / 2GB OCZ Gold PC4000
eVGA 8800GTS 320MB / eVGA 6800GS 256MB
150GB Raptor / 74GB Raptor
2x500GB / 320GB
OCZ GameXStreme 850w / OCZ StealthXStream 600w

Anything from antec will be almost inaudible.
