Since when is Fortron better than Antec? Antec makes some fairly high-end PSUs don't they?

I'm going with the Antec TruepowerII 380W. Should be plenty for my system and I'm guessing it's a little higher quality than the Fortron?

The Fortron is more powerful than the Antec (not just in watts) and they make solid, reliable PSUs.

Yeah I'm suprised more people aren't firmiliar with Fortron, it's recommended for systems here all of the time.
That's a very good psu, but either would be fine.
