Default Buying PSU, any suggestions?

I'm looking for a new PSU (500-600W) that will keep a OCed PC stable. I really want it to be silent! I've seen this and that , but I'm not really sure about them. Any suggestions?

FS Nortron, Antec, OCZ and PC Power & Cooling are all good brands for PSUs. FS Nortron tend to be cheaper than OCZ and PC Power & Cooling, but are great for how much you pay.

If you've got the extra cash and you want the extra feature(s) and fan(s) then go with OCZ and PC Power and Cooling.

If you have the money, go for the OCZ Powerstream 520W. That is a very nice psu that should do everthing you need and more.
