Are there quite PSU's that will support a high end system?

Hi everyone,

I just built a new computer and my PSU seems to be the loudest component. I would like to improve the sound of my PSU. I found a website called QuietPC.com - PSUs. Based on everything I have read, none of these PSU's seem to be recommended for high end systems.

Anyhow, my main concern is improving the sound of my PSU and retaining a stable system. Here are my specs:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.40GHz
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-N680SLI-DQ6
Graphic card: EVGA GeForce 8800 GTX KO with ACSĀ³
HD: Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 750GB
Case: GIGABYTE 3D AURORA GZ-FSCA1-ATS
Sound Card: Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty
Ram: Kingston HyperX 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800
Power Supply: COOLMAX CW-650T EPS12V 650W (I would like to replace)
**May add a 2nd GPU later...

Any suggestions on a new PSU and any comments on the quitepc.com website?

Thanks,

Tom

A coolmax psu with an 8800gtx... Very interesting combination. I would either get a 620w Enermax Liberty or a 650w Enermax Infiniti. I have a 620w Liberty, and the fan is really quiet, i can barley hear it over the fan on my Tuniq Tower. Im pretty sure the same fan thats in the Liberty is in the Infiniti.

Any recommendations for a PSU that has 4 PCI-E connections just in case I upgrade to 2 GPU in the future? Also, what about the 500W+ PSUs from quitepc.com?

If there is no such thing as a quiet PSU that supports 4 PCI-E, then I will stick with a 2 PCI-E connection PSU. Thanks for all the help!

I second the 750w Quad if your going to go SLI in the future, its a monster of a psu. Quiet as well, 26-40dba.
