Don't buy that PSU, it failed some tests. Get a Corsair 650w.

OK thank you, I'm not getting this PSU then.

The difference from a Antec 750w and the Corsair 650w after the rebates is just $5 , should I get the Antec PSU, or the Corsair?
Corsair 650w
Antec 750w

Both are good PSUs, so if the Antec is only $5 more than get it.
