Calculate your power needs <A HREF="http://www.adecy.com/psu/" target="_new">here</A>. The Fortron has been shown to actually deliver 400 watts +, but make sure that's enough for your needs. :smile:

Power supply wattage calculator results: 445W (244W on +3.3v & +5v rails).

I think the fortron looks better - higher end, dual fan, etc... would the 350 be ok for my system or should I look at the 400?

After about 6 hours of internet research I'm pretty sure I'm buying the antec true480 power supply. Good choice? All the reviews seem to think so, lol.

I like Antec, I have a pure power 550W. The reason is I calculated my needs to be 400+ and I wanted additional headroom for future expansion and needs.
Always overbuild and you will be ready for whatever tomorrow brings.
