Seriously? I would have thought the other way around. Cheaper psu = ASPLOOOSIONS does it not?

Is it...I mean....Just seeing the word Antec makes me nervous. Is this gonna be okay? I mean I guess you wouldn't recommend it if it were going to fry my system but, you must understand my discomfort lol.

Antec makes high quality PSUs. What gave you the idea that they were crap?

The difference between this and the other PSU is wattage. Same quality.

Yeah I only just noticed the other was antec as well.

I just see a LOT of slander on the net. Like a lot. Like they're the Dell of PSUs.

No, they are fine. Very high quality. I never hear people saying this, except from the few people who got a lemon one, but that happens with every brand. You want to see bad PSUs, look at silverstone. Their 1200 watt can't even run a phenom II system with two 4850 x2s without being overdrawn immediately.

That one should be ok. The +12V line is rated at 480W.

One more concern, The video card is a weekend event and I won't be able to order it for a few days I think unless I just order the card now and the psu later. (I have $240 saved, the other 30 comes from potentially getting it within the next week).

Tha would be okay. If the price of the PSU goes up, we could always find you another one.

You guys rule. Hopefully I can add my money to my prepaid credit card before tomorrow night >.> Not sure if that's instant or if it takes time like paypal does.
