Antec True480 or True550? Perhaps another brand altogether? Ordered a new Antec P160 case, need a new PSU, any input is welcome.

get the 550w to play it safe, the way video cards are going these days it's best to get the biggest

I have an Antec True 550w and I'm very pleased with it

If you're going for an X800 series card then you won't need 550w. You probably won't need 550w for the 6800 series either. What's the price difference? If they're within $10 or so of eachother, then get the 550w, but if it's a great price difference, say $20 or so, then I wouldn't bother.

$75 - 480, $95 - 550

Probably going to go with 480, seems like a good PSU.

I have had my Antec true 550 for over a year and never had a problem.

I have a geforce 6800 ultra extreme and an antec true 330. It works fine so far.

He can get an Antec True480 for $75, which is one of the BEST PSU's on the market... and your suggesting a no-name 480w PSU for more money??? :bleh:

You can get a Turbo link or a channalwell for a cheaper price.
All Antec PSU are made by Channalwell and Channalwell make all Turbolinks.
I like my Turbo Link 500W dual fan for $50US
