After my CX500w died on me i had to choose between two powersupplies :

Xilence 480W redwing.
and the second one is the Advance ATX-5100 480w also, it came with my case

No i can't choose any other ones.

So which of those two is the best to power these 2 builds :

G620 2.6 ghz
6770
1 HDD

or

C2D 7200
8800 GT
1 HDD

If the xilence will power the G620 build the advance would power the other and vice versa.

then i'd go for the more expensive one. if you can get a better brand then that would be good. more expensive though but worth it

Well, NEVER skimp on the PSU. I did and needed to buy a new one with my previous one being burnt(CM extreme power plus 600W). I prefer buying Corsair PSU's, they have awesome quality, build with great customer support. Check this page for the recommendation:
