Seasonic PSU help

Last response: in Components

I am in the middle (or more toward the end) of buying the components for my new computer, but the PSU I was recommended is almost always sold out on Newegg and isn't on the recommended list here. Is there a better option than the SeaSonic SS-650HT 650W for the following build?

Phenom II X4 965 3.4GHz Processor
GA-MA770T-UD3P Motherboard
Corsair 4GB RAM
EVGA 01G-P3-1371-TR GeForce GTX 460 Video Card
SpinPoint F3 HD103SJ Hard Drive
RAIDMAX Tornado ATX-238WU Case with three fans

I will be using an old CD drive for now, but will eventually upgrade to a CD/DVD player and probably a blue-ray player.

I can find the reccomended PSU for 80 plus shipping online besides Newegg and am thinking about getting the Seasonic S12II or M12II 620W instead because they were on the recommended list, but it seems like a step down from being able to get 30 more Watts for the same price.

Any Recomendations?

you'll need at least a 650W power supply, so the psu isn't always working near its full capacity all of the time...i'd recommend anywhere from corsair to thermaltake

The seasonic that dadiggle linked to is plenty but here is another 650watt option Antec EA

hat one is more expensive and the Seasonnic has bronze certification

The antec draws 22A from the 12v while the Seasonic pulls 40A. So seasonic is way better

Please get your facts straight the antec has 540watts available for the +12volt rails which is 45amps total.

Thank you both for the advice on the Antec. I just bought it and now only have one component left to buy :)
