If you want to overclock I'd be lookin at a good 450w min.

Ok lol,

which of these two would you recommend?

OCZ 500W

or

Antec 500W


I like the looks of the OCZ better though haha

That included PSU only has 18A via the +12V rail, definitely pushing it.

That's my recommendation.
Superb warranty, very quiet; could aruguably even handle lower end CF/SLI setups (though i'd never recommend lower end dual card setups).

Between the two, the Antec definitely gets my vote.

That OCZ unit comes with hardly any connectors at all. Only two SATA connectors, and only a 4-pin mobo connector.

Edit: The 450W Corsair is also an excellent unit, if the extra money is in your budget.

I'll probably go for the Antec then, the Corsair looks nice but I'm currently out of a job now (though looking) and am pinching pennies saving for university in the fall. Any other opinions are welcome lol

Edit: Ok just bought the Antec so no need for anyone to reply anymore lol
