If I'm not mistaken, Channel Well 'should' be a decent PSU. Try it out and see...

It will serve you well since you are not ocing. If you start adding lots of stuff or start OCing you my want to think about a better psu.

This Japanese website shows that the Antec 350W SmartPower and 380W TruePower are rebadged Channel Well Technology. Notice "CWT" (barely) printed on top of each transformer:

I know you need good "clean" power, but I currently have all of the following running on a 160 watt power supply

P4 2.4Ghz
256MB DDR
Radeon 9700Pro
SB Audigy
Modem
16x DVD drive
48X CDRW
floppy

The system has been running 24/7 crunching seti when I'm not messing with it.

BTW, it is a pre-built system from an "unamed manufacturer", but I have not had one lock or error with this machine. I've also researched many other current.
