Does a Corsair VX550 fit in your budget? That would be a better pick than any of those two, and plenty power for your rig.

Ideally, get the Corsair 550vx or 650tx. If you can’t then I would pick the Antec EA-650W

Seventeam produces decent PSUs. The EW 650 is new... I'm not sure if the OEM is still Seasonic or if they are using a different design.
Once again...

how is the 460w not enough im just asking. are you upgrading just to be safe or does you PC shut down cause you dont have enough power?

Im asking this cause my friend is also running a E2180 and gigabyte 8800GT on the cm460w

BTW... it seems that Antec is now using Delta instead of Seasonic for some of their EarthWatt units. A review has not been done on the new versions yet so we don't know if this is a bad thing.

It does shut down .. the card and the cpu are both very very demanding .. i was really keen on the seventeam 620w psu since its rated 30A through a single 12v rail

30A on a single 12V rail isn't very much for a 620W PSU...

The Corsair VX550 is 'only' 550W, but delivers 41A over a single 12V rail. Heck, even the VX450 (450W) delivers more than the Seventeam (33A, single 12V rail).

A relatively low 12V rail often reveals an old(er) design which is more generous toward the 3.3V and 5V rails. Thus, not the best pick for a modern PC.

I'd really check if you can find a Corsair VX550... it seems to be the unit for you.

I checked.... the Seventeam actually delivers 48A on a dual 12V rails (one of 18A, and one of 30A, and yes in this case they do add up, which is a RARE exception!)

The specs of the seventeam aren't bad at all...
