Antec NEO HE500W - $113.29 Can.

Any thoughts?

Antec TruePower 550watt at NewEgg for $89 is a better deal and quality...

Antec NeoPower NeoHE 550 - Triple 12v rail system (18amps per) which is excellent. Is modular which is always nice. Seems to have compatibility issues with some ASUS mb's (A8N32-SLI Deluxe, A8N-SLI Premium, etc.)

OCZ ModStream 520 - mmm, only functions on a single rail, not too sure if I'd like that, even though the rail is rated at 26amps. Rail could be overwhelemed depending on what your system demands are.

RichPLS suggestion is a good one as the Antec TruePower 550watt does have a dual 12v rail system at 19amps per and doesn't seem to have any compatibility issues

I am looking for a modular psu since it looks way better, the truepower was 1 of the "candidates".

Might be a better deal, but can't get NewEgg in Canada yet. Try Tigerdirect.ca

Agreed antec is a better value but the 520w OCZ @620w is rock solid id buy one again if i dont have the cash for a PC Power & Cooling one.

better deal no doubt. Quality i would say equal, the modular on the Antec makes it the winner.

rich was talking about the Truepower.

at the author, they are both very good PSU's. I've had good fortune with antec some have not, but that goes for every company. pick the one that you can get the best deal on.

I think i'll go with the antec since it has triple 12v rails.
