    Which case did you get? What are your other components? I'm very wary about any PSU in the 200-300W range unless the components are appropriately low-consumption.

    Simply choosing from your list, SeaSonic is a reputable manufacturer.


    Edit: ok wow! The 12V rails on that SeaSonic are excellent for such a small PSU!

    Hrrrmmmm. I'm having trouble figuring out if Shuttle PSUs are in the ITX form factor since I've never actually tried swapping shuttle and standard mini-itx PSUs (they sure look like the same form factor, to me.)

    But anyhow, if they're the same (or close enough that you can jimmy it,) I would absolutely recommend a shuttle PSU. They're well made and have really good rail balance for mainboard+CPU/GPU/components that actually lets them do pretty well with decent gear.

    Its an In Win case. Side note, never buy anything from In Win (which is unfortunate because this is a fairly clever case), their customer service has not responded at all to e-mails or phone calls from me or New Egg for a week now. So much for a manufacturer's warranty... but I digress.

    Its a fairly low power build.

    A hard drive, optical drive, and some USB devices. No wifi, no bluetooth, all on-board audio and video, etc.
