Smile Looking for PSU on this build

Hello All, a friend of mine has the below build and wants a new power supply, I think he'd like something with LED's and a nice look on the cords as well. Modular isn't all that necessary but is a good plus. I've always used Antec power supplies, and never purchased one with LED's. System build is below.

Gigabyte 965 motherboard
E6400 C2D (currently not OC)
2GB Corsair XMS2 Ram
8800GTS 320MB video Card
SB Audigy Gamer
250GB WD HDD
Antec 900 Gamer Case

I think he's trying to stay at around $100 U.S. but if it's worth it to spend more feel free to link! He buys his stuff from NewEgg like I do so if you have any egg links that helps too.

This one is pretty much my favorite PSU around 100 bucks to buy.

Good Model, Modular, and can handle SLI 8 series if needed.

Thanks, Sora. Power Supply was purchased and runs awesome. Thought it had some LED's in it, but it just looks like it would

When I turn the PC off with this PSU in it the rear fan still spins for 2 minutes. At first I thought something was wrong, but it is exactly 2 mins every time so I guess it's just cooling it down?

That's good and yes I believe its a setting with the PSU to cool it down or to prevent damage or something...whatever it is it's for the better. I believe you can turn the setting off somewhere though if he doesn't like it.

Take a look at the power supply guide for more options linked in my Signature.
