    The Corsair CX400 would be a great choice, as would the Antec Earthwatts 380W, PC Power & Cooling Silencer 370W, and Seasonic SS-400ET or SS-400ES, to toss out a few more choices.

    Perfect!
    Yes. One of the last commincations I had with Dave Hammock before he disappeared from the web was how a major brand single +12V rail PSU wasn't shutting down when shorted. We were literally arc welding with the PSU. Hopefully Dave's absense isn't due to the fact that he got over zealous with the welding.

    Which Phenom? If you go with a Phenom II, you'd be alright, but if it's one of the old 140W TDP Phenoms, you might have a bit of a problem.

    Yes, but the Corsair 450W is usually about the same price.
