Hello,

What are your PC specs ? What is your budget ? Are you certain 380w is enough for you ? Between the 2, the Antec EarthWatts Green 380w is better.
But if I were you, I'd have a look at these two :

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.

no on the antec basiq series (except the 550w which is better than the others),
no on the corsair builder series.
