antec are the best power supplies out there that i know about.. alot of people on this forum highly looks at them for all builds and it is rather a good power supply. BUt you have to look and like out of how many did they sell and how many did acually post a review and of course every company is going to have some bad parts. But i would go with antec if i was you it is the best (that i know of)

The best i know of is the turbo cool line from pc power cooling offer almost %90 efficiency.......but im not going to spend over $100 on power supplies for old home p4 file servers.....

Antec is my first choice for these antiques.....
How about any specific models.......
Newegg carries 2, 400w antecs.......what is the diffence in hardware....since their prices are different...
