Yes the Antec earthwatts 430 should provide enough power for your system.

Oh I was talkin' about the OCZ.

To the OP, that Antec is good, but for the price, I would probably go with the PC or Enermax.

ohh that's right. I just opened the case and saw 580w under the +12v things and thought it must be for them. Ohh well... still leaves over 35A for the +12v even if the +5v and the +3.3v would take the max of 155w.

Yeah, doing the math I would imagine it's a true 2 rails @ 18A each.

You can't go wrong as long as you use a PSU calculator and then find a solid PSU(independently tested) in that range.

FYI - that 9600GT is probably lucky if it draws more than 7A full tilt.

They are not actually rails. They are in fact split from a single 12V rail to comply with regulations.

Well, I'd call the BFG a good choice. But a god choice, no. LOL!

Any of the power supplies that have been posted here will work well for your system. It really boils down which features you're looking for and how much you want to spend.
