of the two you listed I would go with the antec

thermaltake does not have a great reputation on its lower powered PSU

if you purchase your PSU before 9/22, this antec is actually better then the one you linked and cheaper with the instant online rebate plus i think it has a mail in rebate to further your savings*

*$59 with free shipping - $10 instant rebate - $15 mail in rebate

its a steal at that $35 price

Without any doubt, the Antec Neo Eco 520 is a much better option. It's a quality PSU made by Seasonic. 35$ is a great deal.

Good find by ct1615.
In any case, in this day and age, avoid any PSU with a little red voltage switch on it; at best it indicates an older, inefficient design, and at worst it means the PSU is utter crap.
