It wont make a difference on performance (not noticeable if there is any)

I don't know how good of a company enermax is, but if it is a good one 350 should be enough (just, as you have 2 harddrives)

All three above are the best.
Antec is the best out of them most of the time.

I have a personal preference for Antec. I would get an Antec True 550. its $100, but its a REALLY nice PSU.

Thermaltake has a PSU that has modular cables, if you are an oraganization knid of person. Although with all the extra stuuf it boasts about on the thermaltake home site, it probably costs quite a bit
