First one no doubt. They make much better quality PSUs from what I've heard.

What do you need to power? The 500W Antec Basiq is a great PSU for $40.

Definitely take the 1st one! PSU is the heart of your PC. Most people think it’s the CPU but it’s actually the PSU You might be able to go cheap on CPU and OC, but you can’t OC the PSU hehehe.

Oh yeah, you're going to need something stronger than a 500W, maybe even stronger than 600W? Don't overlook the PSU though, very important part. In such a build, I would be willing to spend around $120 or so.
