If it's all watercooled surely he'll be overvolting and overclocking the bejeebus out of the system?

Some people do it just for the looks and for the silence.

You'd be right if I had the PSU to handle it. I'll probably push it to it's limit and back it off by 10-15% just to be safe.

You're correct except in my case it is due to to his location and my soon to be location (Phoenix, AZ). The GF soon to be wife said any new computer needs to be as silent as possible in the new house too.

I took a similar route to a silent computer, I ended up buying gelid fans + fan controller to have a silent PC. It costs around 100$ just for the fans..

how important are the differences in the PSU in their respective section?

like for instance, for a 800-899w area, or a 500-599w area,
can we just choose the cheapest priced PSU from that respective list?

It can depend on your usage plans and what components you have (it can dictate the importance of the quality of the unit). What will you be doing with your computer and what will or does it consist of? Or, is it your "First Build" linked in your signature?

I certainly wouldn't go for the cheapest one I could find. Pick one and look up reviews, Jonny Guru reviews if possible, and see what he says! Personally, and I'll be the first person to say I'm a novice when it comes to PSUs, but I would look at brands like Seasonic, Corsiar, EVGA, XFX and find something in my price range. I would then look for a review on jonnyguru.com and work from there.

I remember in my early days, I didn't heed the warnings of buying quility power supplies.

I was young and reckless! Money went into bigger GPU's! MORE RAM! FASTER CPU'S!!! Pffftttt! Power supply! I scoff at you!

But one fateful day, mid game... I had an ear ringingly loud BOOM from my PSU. -_-
Since that day, I buy better than what I need to last me for years. And on that note; I can chime in on the Seasonic 1000W Platinum as a great bit of kit.
