Hi guys.

I do a lot of mic recording so i am trying to replace my noisy ocz 700watt cheap power supply.
I had enough with it's annoying fan.
I need some recommendations for silent ones please.
Here's my spec
Core i7 3770k
1 x 120gb SSD
3 x 1tb HDD
Geforce 8800GT (might upgrade in the future for gtx 700s,800s, etc)
4gb x 2 Ram

So pretty much those are the main components.

Also, i'm curious if getting a higher wattage than what i require will help lower the psu load, making it more quiet?
I'm not sure if there's any credibility to that..

Anyways thanks!

Higher wattage won't effect the noise level. Antecs are pretty quiet; read some newegg reviews on the earthwatts series. The 650w is fairly popular.
