Yep that is a very nice PSU. I have this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817104155
and i love it to death. OCZ makes great PSU's but the Antec should do fine, and it's cheaper.

No. What's your budget, here is the end all of PSU's:

If you can't afford that, get this:

I'm getting a ton of stuff for my new comp so I'm sort of on a budget, as PZEROFGH probably already knows, he's posted on everyone one of my threads.
I'll probably get a $50 one to last me until I get a little more money.

That's actually a decent brand over at dfi-street, not sure about the model however.

If you want one that delivers power and looks good, get the aspire 520w
it has 35a at 12v, although it doesn't have dual rails
It will still hold strong; the people on this site will usually suggest the fps one that pzero suggested - and as it's a good powersupply - you would be just as well off with this one or others.
Comes to same price as the fortron source 450w after rebate
