The Antec 500W. The others don't even get close to its reliability and durability. The cooler master doesn't even list its output amps and the thermaltake does.. just they suck. 18A on the 12V rail? Compared to +12V1@17A, +12V2@19A (36A) on the Antec, 18A is nothing..

Okie.

Never thinks about thermaltake PSU. They makes the best cases around, but the poorest PSUs. Buy one Antec True Power 550 W or something for future upgrading.
Also, consider again your graphic card. Buy a 7600 Gt for quite the same price but much increased performance.
