I have an Antec Earthwatts 500 watt that powered my gaming computer with a GTS 8800 for 3 years and has since been powering my parents computer for another 2, solid as a rock. There are some great sales on them from time to time as well.

My System Specs


IMO you already own the OCZ and its not a bad PSU so I would continue to run on it. Its not the best PSU out there, but its by far not the worst. IMO save your money unless you want to further upgrade your system or start overclocking further than you already have.
