Between the 2, the Antec EarthWatts Green 380w is better. But if I were you, I'd have a look at these two : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... They're a bit more expensive, but they'll last longer. Plus, if your PC needs 250w at idle, you'll get the best efficiency possible. beanoslim a b ) Power supply December 21, 2010 7:22:13 PM The Earthwatts but that doesn't mean its the best for you, need more system info^ Related resources Which PSU is better ? - Forum Which is better PSU ???? - Forum Which Is The Better PSU ? - Forum Which Psu Is Better For HD Radeon 6770 - Forum Which PSU is better ? - Forum Can't find your answer ?
