Personally, I would go with the Corsair, only because I've used them before and have not been disappointed. I haven't heard of Fractal Design.

If it's within in your budget, you might consider a 650 W supply like this one:

Newegg.com - SeaSonic S12G S12G-650 650W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Running a 125 W CPU and that graphics card, it couldn't hurt to have a little extra Wattage handy. SeaSonic is also a solid brand. With power supplies, it's a good rule of thumb to buy more than you need, and a good one will last for years.

I would agree with 650W. I like Antec.

Seasonic with all my heart if budget allows, then Corsair, Antec, XFX, Thermaltake, CoolerMaster....not necessarily in that order.
Consider the PSU the heart of the rig as important as the CPU !

Noise with any of the premium PSU's wont be an issue. Some even are fanless but I find that if the PSU has cool air available and is oversized for capacity needs then they run cooler and very quiet. Seasonic.....if possible !

It appears that if the be quiet meets your price range it has gotten good reviews and could be a sound purchase. Here's the last words of the review I read for a different model but still the Pure Power L8 series:

"Legit Bottom Line: The Be Quiet! Pure Power L8 700 W certainly is a very good product, well made and offering excellent performance. If the retail price however is not on par with other similar products at the time of its release, the newcomer into the US market will be facing impossible odds against competition."
