For heatsinks, Zalman or Thermalright are arguably the best, though I still like Thermaltake.

PSU’s, you say best, not best value, therefore, Vantec, Antec, Thermaltake, Aerocool and Enermax are all very good, I favour the Aerocool.

Harddrives, the jury is still out on this one, but I would suggest its between Seagate and Western Digital.

Soundcards, the Creative Labs Soundblaster series has the market sewn up.

The brand of most other bits is not as important.
