The 430W supply is an excellent choice for your setup, but don't even think about running the Peltier off of you PC PSU. You can get a 12V 22A switching supply for $40.00. It will fit inside or outside your PC and is more than adequate for that 156W pelt.

Ditto with Hoot, I suggest Enermax powersupplies - quiet and stable voltages.

if you are going to do it, do it right- you will need two psu, you can get two 450W enermax for $99.00 each

Listen to Hoot!! That would be a great solution. If i were to give a psu opinion i would tell you to go with Enermax Psu's.
