It seems like the newer one, below, is cheaper and has dual 12v rails.

And they still have the original TruPower 430w. Yet it's more expensive?

If I were going to get either, I'd go with the new one.

I would go with the old one. I am not a fan of dual +12v rails. What if a paticular device calls for more than 17A?

Keep in mind that when NVidia asks for you to have at least 20amps on your 12v rail, in order to run the 6800U, that they aren't taking dual rails into account - they expect that 20amps to be shared with other devices. At least AFAIK anyhow. 16amps on it's own should be fine.

I could be wrong but that's my understanding of the situation.
