True, warranties are a good deciding factor but like the others have said it is least likely that the unit is going to fail during that second and third year. Sounds like you've had bad experiences with PSUs and I understand completely in your shoes but I had my old mediocre OCZ unit for a little less than 5 years before I sold it to a friend a while back and as far as I am aware it is still chugging along fine. I would suspect the same or better in general from either PSU being suggested.
Back on to topic: I personally vote for saving the cash and taking the Antec PSU.
