The corsair has a single 12v rail of 40 amps and a lower price after rebate. Don't know if the 5 year warranty is correct; lots of typo errors showing up lately.

Go with the Single Rail Corsair.
Max combined 12v amperage in Antec is 30A only (aprox. 30A~360W combined, its NOT 22A+22A+25A).

Saying this get the corsair, it can delivers 40A max.

I actually picked up an Antec High Current Gammer 750W PSU and Asus gtx560 OC today. I'm in love with the PSU (and the GPU of course); I believe I payed ~75 bux for it? IMO worth the extra cash but if you are on a budget you are on a budget. Good luck!

Both Antec and Corsair make some good PSU's....however they also make som every average and some below average PSU's. They are both "Builder" series units meaning they are primarily built for the "cheap" OEM market

How about one that gets 9.5 performance rating from jonnyguru ? Does $60 meet ya budget ? XFX Core Edition PRO650W

Yesterday, newegg had this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... low end power supply for $25 after rebate. Notice the 13 amp 12v rails versus the 650w rating. If you believe this, I've got some prime swamp land in florida I'll sell you. And this unit is better than some of the units that come with cases. The only cases that have halfway decent power supplies are made by antec. Most of the others are overated and could fail under load.
