How much of a difference is there between the Corsair 400W and the OCZ 400W?

Not a huge difference.

Is OCZ any good for MIRs?
The 500W StealthXStream is only $30 after $30 MIR @ cc.

I think I'm going to hold off on the PSU and see what I can find over the next few weeks.
By the end of the month I should have enough to get everything I need.
I'd like to get everything right now, but I just can't afford to do it that way.
Talked with the gf and she thinks it's best to wait, so that helps make up my mind.
Ordered a Coolermaster Elite 330 case ($49.97 after tax/shipping and pricematch) and now I'm going to bed.

Thanks again, guys.
The help is much appreciated.

The 500W StealthXStream is from a different manufacturer than the 400W model and is quite a bit worse. I would stick with the 400W model if I were you.

I would honestly wait for the Corsair 400/450 to go on sale and grab one of those.
They are truely solid little PSU's.

I have a bit of time yet to put the build together.
I've got the CPU/mobo/RAM/...case on the way
Got the case for a decent price and shipping was only $7.99 so I'm happy for now.

Hopefully I'll see another good sale by the end of the month.

Ok, I need some last-minute buying advice...

Corsair CMPSU-400 for around $54 with $22 MIR
or
Antec Basiq 550W for around $62.
(prices including tax and shipping)

I'm thinking I should go with the Corsair, but am not sure about the MIR.
Also... a little worried 400W won't be enough power.
