Default Which PSU?

Hmm. I'm in a debate between two PSU's:

http://canadacomputers.com/index.php...311&cid=PS.808

or

http://canadacomputers.com/index.php...901&cid=PS.808

I don't think I need the extra watts, I won't be running anything too powerful (no 8800GTX here ). Any input? Thanks.

edit: I will be running a P5B-Deluxe with an e6600, and this video card

I like both Thermaltake and Antec (as well as Enermax, OCZ and BFG) power supplies, so either of those companies gets my thumbs up. The 430 is certainly enough power supply for the rig you're planning. I tend to keep my case and power supply and upgrade the motherboard/processor/etc (multiple times), so if you are future-proofing, go with the Antec. I like the dual 12V rails and dual fans it has, too.

Thanks a bundle! Also, thanks for the reply on the Sound Card thread I made. . Now I just have to wait until the end of April/beginning of May, and then I'll post the build that I'm planning, and see what everything thinks!
