Default PSU choice

Which would you guys choose:

HIPER HPU-4M480-PS or FSP Group (Fortron Source) AX400-PN

This is for a budget X2 (3600) system that i'll be building.

Thanks

Agreed with turtile. That is a great PSU. Nice and rock solid. I have that one, and it runs one of my systems 24/7.

Personally, the hiper, but they are both great choices.

I'd say the Fortron one solely based on having had several of those that outlasted the system they were in. Yeah, they still work, but what do I do with a 250W P/S nowadays?

ok, i'll go with the fortron, but will it be enough juice to power a 7900gs?
