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.

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 :)
