Best Power Supply for Gaming and Quiet

I am going to up grade my system and I decided to start with the power supply. I am looking for something that is as quiet as possible but is still dependable. I am going to be overclocking and playing games. So, I will need something powerful enough to run the motherboard, CPU cooler, a few case fans, a good video card, SSD drive, and a Blue Ray/CD Run drive.

You need to specify your motherboard and CPU before we can make recommendations.  Also specify your graphics card as well.  That'll give an idea of how much wattage you'll need in your PSU.

nowadays - PS are nearly inaudible, because they use 12 cm fans - that rotate more slowly

i agree with the above - you can even calculate how much power you'll need :  http://extreme.outervision.com/psucalculatorlite.jsp

Seems OK.  Good warranty.

Note fan spins up if you are using more than 370 watts.  See http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/EVGA/SuperNOVA_G2_750/6.html

you must first determine how much power you'll need, as i suggested above
if you need more than 750 W (depending mostly on cpu and video card) it may even be too low..
also -buying a 750 W unit wwhen you need 400 W is not recommended
