  1. The PC Power and Cooling is the better unit. 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.

  3. 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.

    I will never buy OCZ again :)
