Me being a Corsair fanboy, I'd actually recommend the Earthwatts.

Why? While Antec makes good stuff, the Corsair has slightly more power, is loads cheaper (after the promo code and the MIR), and we all know how good corsair PSUs are. What makes the Antec look better to you?

EDIT: Not to mention it looks sexier. Lol.

Ah, I had assumed they were the same price... I really need to pay more attention O_O

But yeah, Corsair all the way.

Yeah, 20% off would make it 38 bucks, then a $10 MIR? That's a steal.

It has more power but is lesser quality compared to the Antec or Corsair. You don't need that much power for your system anyways, stick with the Corsair.
