Default what is a very good quality psu?

For my system the 400 watt antec psu is just not capable to power everything I have. What is a good quality pus that is quiet with atleast 500 watts? Price is not a huge factor, around a 100$ US.

Thanks for the help.

Only one suggestion http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...745&CatId=1079
Of course, if you want to have flashy side windows you can spend the extra $20...

Halo, is it a quiet psu? The antec I have now its very quiet, you cant hear it over anything else. That is one main feature I am looking for.

Halo, for that psu, do you have to use the fan control? Does it come with a three pin conector or just a molex?
