Both are good buys, but I'd go for the Hiper for the fact that you get 80w extra for $15 less.

Alas, the Enermax gives quite a bit more power, despite the extra 80W overall on the Hiper.

44A on the Enermax as opposed to 38A on the Hiper. Watts don't mean jack.

Both PSUs are good, and either will be fine for whatever you might be using it with.

I was faced with that same dilemma when I was building my computer. I chose the enermax.

I am definitely happy. It runs everything I need fine - my 7900GTO fine. Not too much power hungry stuff I'm running so I cant comment if its actually better.

But its been 100% stable.
