Default PSU Issue

So I see on this chinese website that this store has Corsair power supplies. Terrific right? I even call ahead and they said they'd have to order it. Then I get there and they tell me they can't. Bummer.

Anyway now I have a last second dillema. I'm stuck choosing between the following manufacturers.

Ac Bell, Antec, Coolermaster, OCZ, Silverstone, maybe Silencer but I'm not certain.

I know I'm looking at amps and all and I would really like 40+ on the 12v rails. Modular would be preferable I think. Anything I'm missing? Any advantages with a strong single rail vs. several others?

A powerful single railed AMP you mean? PC power and cooling. 610W Well I think a single railed AMP is probably much better then many AMPs. Since they won't be dividing up the power source.

YEah isn't looking good. Apparently there aren't PC p&c models. They do have the Silverstone's but not the single rail model yet for another 3 weeks. Otherwise it's looking like Coolermaster is what I'm stuck with.

you don't "need" single rail really at all. Multiple rail Silverstones will be very good as well

Why not just go for an Xclio Greatpower 550W or Corsair 520HX/620HX?

Silverstone would be the best, out of those brands.

Oh, didn't know you lived in Hong Kong. Well I would either go with Antec or Silverstone.
