Power supply question

I am getting ready to build a new computer. While I can pick out other parts and know if you they are quality or not, I can't with power supplies.
What I want to know is any recommendation on a quality power supply. Around 400W would do it.

Antec is a good brand for power supply. Antec TrueBlue has blue LED in it, but it might be too ricey, lol!

Yep, Antec is a top choice and should be on your list.

Make sure you get a quality case too. It's worth the money!! You might want to go with an Antec case that comes with a power supply.

I haven't had any problems with the various Enermax PSUs that I've bought in the past. I believe I have 460w unit in my computer right now.
