Hi. I'm looking for help on choosing a decent PSU for my new Rig.

It's a non OC RIg, Going with a B85 ITX motherboard, and Maybe a I5-4690 CPU, 8GB of Ram, a 3TB hard drive, and an SSD (Not sure which yet), a bluray player/reader and the Best GPU that there is outhere. Didn't decided yet. But Maybe the R9-290X. I don't need it to have more power than I need. Just to power all my stuff quietly and efficiently. Also, I don't have it now, but the case will be the Cooler Master Silencio 352. (Any recomendations on black, most quiet 120mm fans that money can buy out there?)

The Requirements for the PSU are:

It must be most quiet as possible, and Haswell compatible. Modular is the ideal, but not mandatory. And it must be found on this website: http://www.pcdiga.com/1/94/Fontes

My budget for it is 80 Euros.

Any help would be very appreciated. And feel free to ask questions.

Cheers. (I have been struggling with the PSU question for a long, long time, so I would really appreciate some help. :D )

This isn't the cheapest one, but is very good quality, quiet and gets very good reviews. It's manufactured by Seasonic, one of the best in the business.

Edit: And can handle your system and an R9 290X without struggling.

Take a look at this: http://www.pcdiga.com/2/13000/Fonte-XFX-650W-TS-Gold-P1...
Expand your budget by 10 euros and get it. It is XFX which is rebranded seasonic. And we all know seasonic is arguably the best PSU manufacturer out there. And it has 80 plus gold certification and is 650w.

So, basically, XFX Pro 650W Core Edition or the XFX 650W TS Gold? And both are Haswell Compatible?

Both are compatible. Go with Gold edition as it is rated at 80+ Gold Efficiency. It is a real deal here with your will be specs.

Both of them are Haswell compatible. The TS is slightly more efficient, so will probably run slightly cooler and quieter, but both of them are high quality and quiet, so I'm not sure it's worth the extra 12 euro. Somebody that is more familiar with the TS version might be able tell us.
