Default CPU/Case Fan recommendations?

I have a 478 prescott 3.0GHz. Looking for something as quiet as possible. Any ideas? Also any suggestions for a 500+ watt PSU?

Dell E1705
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz T7200
2GB DDR2 667MHz
80GB 5400RPM HDD
256MB nVidia 7900 GeForce Go

Pure power, true power(not peak ratings like other manufactures)
These PSU give you peak, and actual wattage......
Plus a 3-5 year warranty......

Unfortunately, solid pcs are not cheap......

Usually, go by wieght, some web sites show you weight for shipping.....compare weight and prices.......
The more it weighs, the more it costs, the more stable and efficient it will be........

I recently bought an antec truepower 2.0 for an old machine and it runs ok....
