I just bought this Mobo : GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P with Core 2 Quad 9550

I have a crappy coolermaster 500 w noisy PS that I got for free a while back in my tower that this board will go in. I have 4 sata drives and an older pci express card that isn't anything special. This is my development machine. So what I want is a newer PS keeping these things in mind.

Quiet - Really important
Cheap - Under $100 on-sale or after rebate, prefer something around $50-75 but will spend if I can prove to my wife it is great deal!
Power Efficient 80% plus
Longer cables for tower

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

For quiet psu's read this:

A corsair unit of some wattage would be good.

If your pci-e card is a strong one with old technology, then it might need more than what a basic 450 watt corsair can provide.

The rest of your parts are nominal and don't need much.
