While the Xigmatek may be able to handle the power requirement, Corsair is a more reputable brand with a better track record... and is the whopping $5 more after rebate.

The system with a 19" monitor comes to £380, an AMD system with an AMD Phenom II x4 (4 x 3.2Ghz) which processor is better the i3 2100 (2 x 3.10Ghz) or the AMD Phenom II x4 (4 x 3.2Ghz)?
