I dont trust antec, i had to RMA two psu's in a row because they were both DOA.

I'd go with an ultra myself but they are pretty expensive. I recomended him a 550 Ultra that he can buy quickly.


Ultra X2 Titanium ULT31851 - power supply - 550 Watt at Office Depot.

I have a rocketfish 5.1 surround sound headset and it works perfectly. I dont see whats wrong with the company. It might not be at the top of the market but they are a perfectly good company.

Never compare a sound card to a Power supply.

still, i've heard nothing but good things. 5 star reviews all around. I'd pick this over antec anyday, but talking about thermaltake or ultra then i'd definitely go with either one of those.
