All of those power supplies use a single 120mm fan rather than one or two 80mm fans. The $47 Fortron Source AX400-PN should be a decent unit.
Here is a power supply that isn't the same quality as those, but at $37 (delivered) for case, power supply and a 3½" floppy drive, it has got to be up there in "bang for the buck" when the budget is extremely tight.

The X-axis would be DC load, in watts, from 0 to 400 for all of the charts.
Various charts could include on the Y-axis:
External audio noise (in decibels)
AC power consumption (in watts)
DC output potential (in volts, at the END of the connectors)
Electrical noise on the DC output (in mV peak-to-peak)
Ripple on the DC output (in mV peak-to-peak)
If we had all of that, a quick glance at the charts would let you choose a power supply that met your most important criteria based on the performance range that you wanted.
