Question Need some small input on these 2 items

I will be buying 2 of these tomorrow evening, the reviews for it are mostly good but I have heard elsewhere they have failed later on down the road within one year.
Newegg.com - RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular LED Power Supply

Also I will be looking into replacing my mobo on feburary 1st, I have this one in mind but wanted to know what some of you think.
Trying to keep the price under 109.00 with onboard geforce with sli.

That is really low on the 12V.

This 500W has more Amps so it actually out perforfm the Raidmax

Not too bad of a mobo... Its at 90 bucks too right now.

Hmm, will see then I'll only need a minimum of 500 watts.
Also my mother needs a new psu her pc doesn't need much so hopefully her raid max pc can handle this.

To be honest... the raidmax 530 probably not put out more than 450W if that. So the 500W Antec will be even better.

Also remember my 2 260s and oc q6600 drew 520W maxed out.

So you probably only draw 420W or less.

That 380W psu has 5 Amps less than the Raidmax 530W, so That one would forsurely power a dedicated gpu rig, and a lower ati carded rig.

Oh the Antecs are Bronze cert. so they are pretty efficient too
