The new Truepowers are far better. i have the 750 one (not the blue version tho) powering my gaming rig without issues.

I have heard true power is better as well, though I don't know why. I know the lower end earthwatts are seasonic builds, but am not sure about the 750w and don't have any idea what the truepower is.

All Earthwatts models are manufactured by Delta. The EA380 was produced by Seasonic, but it was recently discontinued and replaced with the EA380-D Green which is Delta-made.

Also good, but I doubt it would be any better than the Antec (which also has an additional 2A available across the +12V rails). It's untested, so we have no way of knowing for sure. You can't go wrong either way though. I'm also assuming you're talking about the ST75F-P and not the old ST75F.

Stick with Antec and even though the EA-750 is a great unit that would work fine for you, I would go with the TP-750. I have this unit and have been throwing insane amounts of work at it for a while now. It just keeps going.
