My power supply is a Cosair 430. It's overpowered for my actual needs, but I like to stick with Corsair, Seasonic or Antec for my PSU's and the Corsair 430 was around $35 when I bought with a rebate....just I just went with it.

I'd also recommend staying with a 7,200RPM drive for a boot drive. The green drives are great for storage, and low noise, low heat but performance is a bit less. With that said, for my server box I'm using the Samsung ecoGreen 2TB as my OS drive and my storage drive as I rarely ever boot the box and these Samsung drives are very speedy...so no complaints. However, if this was for an everyday usage computer, I would have gone with a 7,200RPM hard drive or an SSD instead.
