Seeking opinion: Antec 300 Vs Allied 450 - which is a better power supply?

Just ordered a Chieftec aluminum full tower from newegg and it comes with a Foxconn Allied 450 W PS. I didn't need one with a PS
but they were out of some of the other cases I wanted. So anyway would I be better off using the Antec 300W
that I already own or the Foxconn 450 W that is coming with the new tower? Yeah I know the Foxconn is rated a lot
higher but then the 300 W is an Antec....which do you think will give output and which would be quieter...(I've
already used the Antec some and it's a single-fan model, pretty darned quiet).

Oh and what I'll be having in this computer: Chaintec KT333, XP 2000+ at stock speed w/generic copper cooler 60mm fan, DVD, CDRW, one 60 gig WD, Radeon 7500,
five quad LED fans and one Nexus fan controller.

Well if the noise level is an issue for you, plug in the Foxconn and see how loud it is. You could also compare and contrast the power levels on the labels of each PS and see if there are any differences.

From the looks up your setup, it doesn't seem like you need a particuarly powerful PS, however having more power is not a bad thing. You could get by with the Antec.
