I was wondering: For my new machine, I'd like to upgrade my Power-supply (PSU). I'm looking for at least a dual fan one. And I'd like it to be reliable and "quiet". No necessarily totally silent, but not loudy.
I don't really know how much watts I need, but I have a 350W right now on my 850 Duron 'puter, and it fills my needs. Here's roughly what my future ride will be made of:
Mildly Overclocked Athlon 2500+
One S-ATA 120 Gb HD, or one S-ATA 36Gb 10k RPM + one IDE 60Gb 7200RPM
Two CD-ROM drives (Burner + DVD)
ATI Radeon 9500 Pro (used) or new 9600 pro or XT...
One 6 inches cold cathode + some LEDs
Should I go with this "stealth" 420W 3-fan PSU and keep my No-name work-in-progress case...
...or buy a new case/380W PSU combo for 30$(canadian) more?
Very silent, but single fan
. Oh, and it doesn't seem to be S-ATA ready.
If I had more $$$, I'd buy both...
