Default Thermaltake Toughpower 750W Modular Power Supply 129.99

OK as my previous post ended and it was too cluttered and offtopic I ended up with two power supply choices

Thermaltake Toughpower 750W Modular Power Supply Total 60A

and

Corsair 620HX Im not sure on amperage

at 129.9 is the Thermaltake Toughpower a much wiser choice, both in performance and in price/performance ratio? Im going to order this PSU on Friday and I would like your input, like why i should choose one over the other

The corsair should be enough in my opinion. What's your setup?

I have a 520HX running on my setup. It's quiet, reliable, and powers everything nicely.

system is x6800,2x7950gx2, 2 dvd drives, will be getting 2 more soon, 4 case fans, cpu chiller, and i wil be modding my case with uv leds in the near future is the TT Toughpower better than the Corsair 620HX? and would it be wiser to have the extra power left over just in case i might need it in the future?

Just grab the thermaltake just to be sure, but the corsair should do fine.

Yah that's a lot of hardware. Get the one with more amps which I believe is the thermaltake. Why do you need 4 DVD drives though?
