Hi from Brazil,

the last two days I was reading and researching on this great page, very good help, congrats.

I'm producing some music here at home (with intention to get professional) and therefore I need a quiet PC.

For a lot of years I already use a passive cooler for my CPU: Termaltake Sonic Tower - I didn't search for it's reputation here, but it works for me

So, why I first came here? PSU - its a generic low-cost one, very loud.
I searched a lot in the reviews, and looked for devices I can get here, came down to 2 devices wich I now have to choose:
Seasonic S12II-520 (only found a review for the weaker one)
Corsair VX550
the Corsair is a little more pricier but it has 4 Years of guarantee, the Seasonic only 12 month.
Should I go for the Corsair, because of guarantee?
I could get a Zalman 460b cheaper but I haven't found a review here. What about this b-series?
Same price of the Corsair I get the Zalman ZM600HP, but I read here it inferior two the above.
Cheaper I get the Corsair CX series, but I have seen here it gets quite loud at 200watt or so
also cheap: Antec Neo Eco? anybody knows this PSU?



now that I read a lot here, I want to change my case, too.
Now it's difficult to find here the recommended here.
the ones MENTIONED here that I found:
Zalman Z7+ $114
Thermaltake V3 $71
Coolermaster Centurion $146
how are those 3 related in silent PC question?
also at this price-range:
Coolermaster Atx Haf 912 Rc-912-kkn1
Coolermaster Storm Scout



any help I would appreciate



PS:
MSI PM8M3-V mainboard with P4 3Ghz (will opt for a dual or 4 core in the future)
onboard S3 unichrome pro grafic
2 sata-drives
2 DDR memories


Thanks a lot



EDIT: found two from the recomended list:
Cooler Master Sileo 510 for $127
Antec Sonata Proto for $151

finaly this got approved

you guys think my system stays below 200Watts at full load?
I'm asking because I could get a combination at the same shop with this:
Gabinete Antec Sonata Proto
Antec 430W EarthWatts - EA-430D Green

What about the Antec Neo Eco? no reviews found


EDIT: have to say that where I live it never goes under 20° Celsius and is most of the time above 30°


EDIT2: So the Antec Neo Eco is the same as the Seasonic one? I think I have my PSU.
I only have to decide now between 400, 450, 520 Watt.
if i change my motherboard and CPU to a dual or quad core, using onboard grafic, wich one should I choose?
