Default Help me pick a PSU!!!!!!

OK, i have everything picked out for my system except the PSU. Heres the rest of my system:

X2 3800+
Zalman CNPS9500
DFI Lanparty Ultra-d
2GB Platinum OCZ Memory
Maxtor 200GB 16MB Cache HDD

Originally I was going to get:

Antec TPII-550

But now I've decided I want something that would look better in my case, so to power those componenets which of these would work the best:

Antec NeoPower 480

Antec NeoHE 500
(im reluctant to get this one because i've heard lots of bad things about them)

So, Im leaning towards the NeoPower 480, but if none of those are powerfull enough should I go witht the TP-550

not just any. especially not just any. a lot of cheapo PSU's don't actually get their rated output most of the time. good qualtiy PSU's will rate what they can constantly output. cheapo PSU's will often rate what they can sometimes get, but not constantly. and they often don't last.

Get this one:
It's a little more expensive than most PSUs, but as with all computer parts, you get what you pay for. It will give you ROCK stable voltages, and it will allow you to make sure you have a stable OC. It will also last you a VERY long time. Its the best possible brand you can get for high preformance PSUs. Also, since you have a DFI board, you DO NOT want to skimp on the PSU.
so, umm, err yeah
