It's made by Seasonic while the still good OCZ is made by Sirtec. The OCZ is a small step down in quality though. 500 watts is fine for that build. The rest of the build looks fine as well. | Report abuse bigcyco1 Power supply Master November 19, 2012 5:18:51 AM http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/OCZ-ModXStream-P... http://pro-clockers.com/powersupplies/2534-pc-power-a-c... | Report abuse prototype18 Power supply Authority November 19, 2012 6:44:16 AM I vote for tha PCP 500W . Its a better PSU than OCZ . Has a tight voltage regulation. I made a build with an ocz psu and it failed within day's.
