From the ones you listes... OCZ GameXStream without a doubt! I believe the 600W version would be enough for you, unless you go for dual DX10 cards.

The OCZ GameXStream is Quad 12V rails...

Also, it's identical to the FX600 you listed. The GameXStream is build by FSP.

Get the OCZ GameXStream. It's good, reliable, and plenty power.

I think you're hitting the limit of your components! 470 x 8 is like 3.84GHz, which is an excellent overclock for an E6400! Have not seen that high except for phase cooled CPUs!

Only 470x8.... man.. that's as good it gets

OCZ GameXStream Is the PSU for you. Yes the 8PIN EPS12V does help with over stability because of the Extra power.

What are your temps? That chip must be cookin'

Plus, most of those are not even close to stable. Do note that the goal was booting into Windows or just pulling off a CPU-Z... nothing more than that. I would not consider that a real achievement (although it's nice for bragging I guess)
