Default Best cheap powersupply? PFC?

Ok, Since my 12v is only running at ~11.65v most of the time, I think its about time for a new powersupply.

I do like PFC... Is it really that nice?


So far, I've found:
Thermaltake Silent PurePower, 420W, ( Active PFC ), ATX power supply.Intel Pentium 4 Compliant

...or the non-PFC version Thermaltake Silent PurePower, 420W ATX power supply.UL, CSA, TUV, CE Approved. Intel Pentium 4 Compliant

....or theres of course, Antec and Enermax... anyone reccamend some from them? Link me up, Scotty!

Considering they dont carry any good brands in the PSU department, I'll pass.
Thanks, though.

Are Aspires good? I've heard of the brand but dont have any experience with them.

I don't know... it gets good reviews and it's not like it's an off brand or anything. I like the +12v amp rating since I have a few lights and about 8 fans that will run off of it.
