Default Best Power Supply for the money? Help please..

Alright I have come to the conclusion that I am replacing my cheap Raidmax power supply soon. I don't want a low quality one, or a loud one. My computer is quiet, and I have been working hard to get it this way, so I would like my power supply to comply with my noise levels, if you know what I mean. Hmm, ok. I would like a dark colored one, like a black one. If it comes with fan LEDs, thats cool I guess. Needs to carry good voltage and not fluctuate(spelling) much. A high voltage isn't necessary, but I want one. My computer only needs about 330watts, but I will be upgrading a lot of the stuff before I upgrade the power supply again. So, with that said, anyone have any good suggestions? Thanks. Oh BTW, pre-wire sleeving would be AWESOME!


Thanks,
Travis.

Not sure what mobo I have, Everest doesn't specify what I have. I bought my computer built. Everest says unknown. But, my chipset is an Intel Springdale I865PE.

Here... this is my case. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811144089

It came with a 500 watt power supply unit and I've had absolutely NO trouble with it at all. It is black, and works well. I guess all you'd have to do is find out how to order it seperately.

Wayniac, I found one just like that one but its 550 watts. That thing is really cool anyway. Already sleeved, 550 watts, great reviews, 3n1 switching lights and fan speed controller, lol. How is the tempature with the fan controller down pretty far.

This one right here is bling bling! It really cuts down on the clutter in your case as you only hook up the cables you need to use.
