    I'm going to vote for my two single 12v units, the Ultra X-Pro 600W and Silverstone ST56ZF... either one of those would do great with the Ultra being the quiet one of them.

    The Corsair HX series would do very well as well if you like modular

    I assume you mean silent... let's put it this way - mine's powering the HTPC

    The XVS is ok, but not the PSU the X-Pro is.

    Any good brand 400W PSU is plenty for your setup.
    Seasonic S-12 430, Silverstone Element 400, Antec NeoHE 430 for example.
    Or if you want a single rail/modular PSU Corsair HX520 (overkill IMO).
