Try that psu instead. Higher quality, more amps on a single 12 volt rail, higher wattage as well. It's made by corsair, a company that uses seasonic parts. They use much higher quality than other brands (excluding the other good ones).

A psu's not a toy to skimp on. A bad or under powered one is taking chances at taking out the rest of your system. Antec's decent, not the worst, but you can far better for a little bit more.
