theyre all 600w so the power isn't an issue. sorry the pages didn't load for me (on a crap comp) all i could see was the title bar. so if power isn't an issue that only leaves the reliability of the manufacturer.

dude what are you thinking?

those are all low-quality crappy PSU

if you're using AGP, go for the thermaltake 480W silent purepower
if you're going PCI-E, go for the modstream 520W (OCZ) if you don't plan on upgrading this computer, or if you do, the powerstream version

I just looked up the thermaltake 480W slilent purepower and it not a very good PSU. 18A on the 12V that not what I call good. 18A is the bear min you would want on a PSU.

That one a bit better with 26A on the 12V

Now what I consider a good PSU is something like the OCz PowerStream 520W OCZ520ADJ or the Antec NeoPower 480W NEOPOWER.
