Hey is this a very good power supply?

TRUEPOWER 430 WATT ATX12V POWER SUPPLY

I want it to run around 5 80 mm fans and one 120, with 1 cd drive, 1 hard drive


Will it do the job well?

Going to upgrade to water cooling and want to get a bigger PS

Also whats a good / semi good pump?

That's what I have...Antec 430. More than enough juice. Before this, I had an Enermax 300 in this case spinning my AMD XP 1900 system with far more accessories than that.

PS wattages are starting to really get way past overkill anyways, especially considering fans and HD's are now using less juice than a couple of years ago. You'd be surprised that a quality 230, 250 watter does the job, 300 watter more than adequate.
