NOT the best choice. Don't ask for advice and then fall on your own sword with your decision:

If you're limited to your first two choices, then the Antec would be the better of the two.

Im surprised no one has mentioned Thermaltake`s Tough Power 1000..
Fantastic little supply I reckon..
Then again,most of you have to battle with 110Volt primaries here..We have 220Volt primary so it regulates higher..

Ultra X3 1000 is stellar. TigerDirect has frequent sales on this unit and offer it up at a price of $200, which by all accounts is an absolute steal.

I recommend the PSU I have. The thermaltake toughpower 1000watt. It's a sweet PSU and insanely stable.

I wouldn't go with the OCZ unless you want to make a rash/dumb decision. Do not be rude when people are trying to help you.

IMO the Thermaltake Tough power 1KW PSU is a great choice very good quality. Also the power and pc cooling silencer 1KW is also a good choice and the Enermax 1KW is good too

I love my Silverstone OP850, so my vote goes to the OP1000. Its really too bad Chozart isn't around anymore, or he'd have the definitive answer for you. The thermaltake is also a pretty good series, so that may be a good alternative.

On a side note, A single rail IS better than multiple rails, especially 5; its more efficient.

honestly, i've run some crazy setups over the past year or so and my enermax galaxy 1kw hasn't shown any signs of strain. it's power through the lights of 3GTX's, 4gig's of ram, 5 hoard drives, a quad core CPU, 2 watercooling loops and a few cold cathodes.

Weird. The post where I'm called a moron is still here, but my subtle, non-offensive response is gone?

Sounds like the ban hammer swung and missed.
