Default Power Supply compatability and question.

I was looking at two power supplies, one being PC Power and Cooling, and the other being OCZ. The PCP&C, however, is only 420w whereas the OCZ is 500w.

I'm using the 9800 GT graphics card, along with phenom 2 x3 720, and mainly play Warhammer Online, WoW, CSS, various other steam games.

Basically what I'm asking is, which would be the best for the games I play and the combination of my cpu and gpu?

Or, if anyone thinks there is any better power supply, about the the same price, then please suggest it!

PCP&C-Newegg.com - PC Power & Cooling Silencer PPCS420X 420W ATX12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Power Supplies

OCZ-Newegg.com - OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ500MXSP 500W ATX12V V2.2 / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply compatible with core i7 - Power Supplies

Please and thank you!

go for the OCZ, it has a nice rebate.


The only thing ATi can render faster than nVidia is the BSOD
