Either of the Enermax power supplies. Smartpower is Antec's low end line, and shouldnt even be considered. The Mushkin psu is decent, but it's alot less powerful then the Enermax units.

Between the two Enermax models the Noisetaker is slightly better, since the efficiency is higher, but the FMA unit is fine too if the Noisetaker is considerably more expensive.

Antecs true power 550 or trio 650 would be better choices from antec, I personaly am sold on Antec with about 4 years of trouble free service from all of mine.
Zalman and fortron also make good psu's.
