I have the Antec TruePower 430 and absolutely love it. I got it for 100 bucks exactly at compusa, but you could probably find it cheaper online. I'd recommend any of the truepower series. Either that, or something by Enermax.

I have a Thermaltake Silent purepower 480. It seems to be an awesome power supply. I run four 10k scsi drives, three optical, oc'd athlon/vid card, ect. lights and I have never had a problem with it. It has two fans, one that has a fan bus, loomed mobo power wire and a great look.

 

Yeah, I have also heard great things about enermax and antec.

 

One PSU that I noticed on www.tigerdirect.com was the Ultra 500. Right now you can buy the PSU and a chieftec dragon case w/ side window for $109 Canadian. The power supply lists for $109!!! Maybe worth it to check out.

 

good luck!

I had a Antec 400w but it wasn't stable enough for me. I chose the Enermax 465w, and I love it. It is very stable and I do OC my P4 2.4c with no problems. It cost me only $89 at Neweqq (my fav store). Hope this helps you.

I found this neat tool that will help you decide what wattage PSU you need. It's meant to be used as a rough estimate, but at least you can start somewhere.
