Try click here store.co.uk and look at their Q-Tec line of PSU's. They are pretty cheap, and get pretty favourable reviews. Plus they are gold plated!!! And apparently very quiet.

My computer is 4 to 5 yrs old, and only has a 200W power supply. What issues might arise as I upgrage & add more peripherals? I recently upgraded the HDD from 15GB 5,400 rpm to 120GB 7,500. CPU is Athlon 750 (with an enormous fan). Graphics card upgraded to 128MB from 32MB. 192MB Ram (upgraded from 64), ADSL USB modem, CD-RW (4x), DVD drive, keyboard & mouse fairly basic Soundblaster sound card, 1 printer (parallel laser) + now adding an inkjet USB2 multifunction device + PCI USB2 card. If an upgrade is recommended, how do you decide what size is needed?
