Default PSU for gaming rig

Xion PowerReal XON-600F14T-201 ATX12V V.2.01 600W Power Supply - Retail

Antec TruePower 2.0 TP2-550 EPS12V ATX12V 550W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, TUV, CB, FCC CLASS B, CUL - Retail

Which is the best to power my rig, with everything in my sig, and maybe another 7900GT in SLI when i get the cash. the Antec one is nVidia SLI certified, does that certification make a difference in it's true SLI performance, or just a marketing thing. I've never heard of Xion PSU's before, but it looks like it has everything I need. However, I know Antec is pretty reliable. Anything has to be better than the 450W I have now.

600 watts is nice to have for SLI, but that xion 600 is ****

go with the antec 550, its golden

or if you really want 600 then -

I concur. Antec is +almost- always a good choice.

I dont think that antec will hold out for SLI.

The Antec page says it's SLI-capable, i don't see why it wouldn't be. The wattage seems to be enough, too.

Seasonic!!!!

Not many people here recommend this brand but everything I have ever read about them tells me this is the best out there. As soon as I save I am getting this one!

500W

Here is the 600w though.
