Do you guys have any better options for a PSU? I want to stay under 50 USD, modular is nice but not necessary.
This will be powering a budget build.
CPU- i5-3450
GPU- Radeon 7770
HDD- 500gb 7200 RPM
Mobo- Asrock Z77 Extreme4
RAM- 8GB Ripjaw

More about which better
  1. Given only a choice of the two PSU's, I would put the Antec in my machine.
    If my only restriction was to stay below $50, I'd get the CORSAIR Builder Series CX430
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026&Tpk=corsair%20cx%20430
    Which will work as well as either of the two you've listed (IMO)

    One last thing if you buy that raidmax kiss your rig goodbye my friend bought that PSU he had a 6870 though killed his motherboard

    The antec is quite a lot better. I would not take the raidmax. The rosewill which bigcyco1 is quite a nice deal, and currently it is one of the best deals as for psu's under $50. It would have no problem powering your rig.
