Here's my current build:

Case: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

HDD: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

GFX card: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

RAM: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

Mobo: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

CPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

I'm not looking to change any of that unless something isn't compatible.

Now, I do have a PSU in mind, this one:

However, there are two more that both have free shipping and are the same cost, and both have higher Maximum Power:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...

Are either of those PSUs better than the one I have in mind?

I would stick with the first one (Antec Earthwatts).

1.) It is 80 plus bronze.
2.) It got excellent reviews on newegg (for a PSU)
3.) It is adequate for your system (enough power, connectors)

1/3 of the people on newegg said the Rosewell 720 was garbage, but some people were satisfied, maybe you would be lucky and get a good unit. In my experience it is kind of like gambling, you get what you pay for with the higher capacity inexpensive PSU's.

I would have to agree with jsanthara. Go with the Antec Earthwatts. The PSU is the most important part of a build. Don't skimp on it. Get a good name brand certified PSU.

I'm not much of a gambler. Thanks for the info, looks like I'll go with the Antec Earthwatts!
