Antec PSU's are great, but their cables tend to be very short for some odd reason.

Antec tend to make their PSUs with their own cases in mind, good PSUs though.

I'm using Corsair now, 850 watt. Very quiet and reviewed as one of the best in terms of stable voltages.

I'd steer clear of Ultra and OCZ (Even though OCZ now owns PC&C) and other high watt low cost PSUs. I've also seen Thermaltake PSUs do some bad things.

You'd think they would make it compatible with their own cases!!!

I suppose the p182 is no longer supported by Antec PSU's...
Athena Power 12" EPS-12V (8Pin)

I would recommend a Corsair. Not sure if they have modular PSU's but if they do then go for a modular. I always use those if I can. Help's on cable management and you don't clutter up the case with cables you don't use.

I already have my own hacked up cable, But still I was hoping I wouldn't need it.

Its a 24pin motherboard extension with some of the plugs cut off,
It was cheaper than the 8pin extension and its keyed correctly.
