Hey guys, I need a new Power Supply. The current one I have makes too much noise. I think it's more electrical noise than fan noise. In any case, can u guys pls recommend me the most quiet power supply for my needs. Basically, I want minimum 480W power supply & my specs are as follows:

1x Video Card: MSI R6850 Cyclone

1x Motherboard: ASUS P5QL/EPU

1x CPU: Intel Core2 Quad Q9400

2x Hard drives: HITACHI Deskstar 5K3000

2x DVD Burners: LG GSA-4167B BK

2x 120mm case fans

Do you have a budget?

Rosewill Capstone 650W 80Plus Gold $100 ($14 shipping)
The 550W version is the same price so I recommended this one.
You should not be put off my the fact that it is a Rosewill branded unit. The actual manufacturer is Super Flower and the platform is known as Golden Green.
I have never seen a negative review for a Golden Green based unit (NZXT Hale90, Kingwin Lazer Gold, Lazer Platinum, Super Flower branded units, Sentey Golden Steel Power).
Even the Rosewill Capstone 750W got a positive review at Jonnyguru, the only aspect of performance that was unusual for this platform was that ripple and noise was only half the spec at full load (which is still pretty good), rather than well under half the spec at full load.
