i am getting this card soon and i know it needs at least a 450 watt psu, so i want to get a 500 watt psu in case i want to upgrade in the future...

the psu has to be from newegg.ca, since im living in canada. any help is strongly appreciated

That OCZ unit is decent but this Antec is a better brand and has 84 more watts of the +12v rails;

It's also initially cheaper with shipping taken into account(but lacks the rebate like the OCZ unit.)

"just about every PSU under 1000w has only one 12v rail including the OCZ linked by jyjjy"

are you kidding me? there are plenty of 2-3-4 rail psu's under 1000w. Antec's entier range alone is basically made of multiple rail PSU's.

a good 350w psu will run that card. a full system with that card running furmark uses just over 200w from the wall.

Nearly all multi rail PSUs use OCP to get there. (yahoo the term if you don't know what it means.)

The Antec that JY posted has much cheaper shipping. The difference between the two are very small. (The seasonic is a good one, but with shipping and no rebate comes out costing more then the others.) I prefer the Antec due to not worrying about a rebate.

When I read the stickers I see 384 watts for the Antec on the +12 volt but 450 watts on the OCZ. The lowest number on the Antec sticker 534watts is including +3.3 and +5 volts.
